West Virginia whitewater, Green's Run

Preston county, CR 52 to Cheat River section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS III     2.2 miles
  If you've been whitewater rafting and kayaking outside West Virginia you might find the rivers here a bit more manageable, so if you're not from around here don't forget that many of the rivers in this state are not very demanding. The CR 52 to Cheat River stretch of Green's Run is 2.2 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class III section. This is a short paddling stretch so no need to bring snacks. 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 put-in is not too far from Morgantown, if you're not
familiar with the area there's a road map further down the page. A bit of exercise and just hanging out with mother nature have a lot of people coming here. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. The wonderful Preston County scenery and the cool fresh water are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. There are a few other sections in this river system that can be paddled as well. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and  
some kayaking, either way this area has a large number of paddling rivers.
