This is not a class (no fee), but it is geared to paddlers completing COP Intro to Whitewater Clinic or equivalent (Canoe or Kayak).

This is a great river for new or fresher to whitewater. Most of the rapids are straight forward and we will have experienced paddlers to help guide and assist with safety.
Frequently at this time of year the water levels are too high on the Narrows for KII graduates comfort level and we will choose our destination based on their abilities and desires. Alternatives to the Cheat Narrows will include the Dry Fork of the Cheat and the Casselman River. Although there is more " push" to these rivers than the Rocky Fork or Paint Creek where the clinic is taught, the trip will be an appropriate step up for graduates. This is your first chance to start evaluating your skills as a paddler. If you had a relatively positive experience during the clinic, then this is likely your next step. (If in doubt ask your instructor or call me).
