We love our water ... fast

Gauley River, West Virginia
By Dale Leatherman
Most roller-coaster rides are over in a minute. When you raft the Gauley, the thrill lasts all day — and there's no waiting in line.

Mild Ride

For a tamer trip than a Gauley adventure, navigate toward the New River. A high-volume river coursing through a narrow canyon, the New generates big, oscillating waves that swirl around boulders and tumble through rapids with names such as Surprise and Bloody Nose. There's time to drift between rapids, admire the surrounding wilderness and hear guides' stories of the days when the New River Gorge echoed with the sounds of timbering an coal mining.
