Virginia whitewater, Little Stony Creek

Giles county, Cascades to USFS Parking Area section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS IV-V(V+)     1.6 miles
  The Cascades to USFS Parking Area stretch of Little Stony Creek in Virginia is 1.6 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class IV-V(V+) section. The wonderful Giles County scenery and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. The put-in location is a short drive from Blacksburg-Christiansburg-Radford, if you're not familiar with the area there's
    a road map further down the page. This is not the only paddling stretch in this river system, there are others too. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp. This is a short paddling stretch so you'd
better be prepared to walk your kayak back to put-in a few times. Getting a good workout and spending some quality time in nature are great attractions for lots of people. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. The rivers for whitewater rafting and kayaking here in Virginia are often easier than in other  
states, so you'd better keep in mind that many runs in this state are very easy. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this area has a large number of paddling places.

Briefly about the general area:
You simply ought to take a look at Barneys Wall since you're here at Little Stony Creek, and a short spree to Cascades is always worthwhile. There are pleasant spots to discover along the Conservancy Trail, and Upper Falls is an inspiring site to check out while you're here. This river is a great place to visit. Here at Little Stony Creek you'll possibly meet some people from Pembroke, and don't leave Little Stony Creek without first going for a hike along the Falt Peter Trail.
