Rattlesnake Rapid

whitewater rafting through Rattlesnake Rapid on the Lower Gauley River in West Virginia

This scenic rapid can be entered from both the left and and right side of an island that splits the current. The more exciting lines are found from the left entrance as there is a nice broken ledge system to navigate. Stay out of the sieved out rocks on the far left bank though.
