Back Ender Rapid

Back Ender Rapid on the Gauley River in West Virignia

This is a powerful hundred yard long rapid with a steep gradient and narrow channel. The widest entrance is on the right side of the river. A move to the left after entering the rapid will put you on the wave train and keep you away from the undercuts that line the right bank.

There is road access on both sides of the river downstream of Back Ender Rapid.
