You Can Plunge Down A 14-Foot Waterfall On This West Virginia River With One Of The World’s Tallest Commercially Rafted Waterfalls

The Gauley River in West Virginia is one of the most popular whitewater destinations in the eastern United States. Every year, thousands of people flock to its waters. It’s not hard to see why: the Gauley flows through the scenic Appalachian Mountains of West Virginia and is home to a variety of wildlife, including bald eagles, ospreys, and otters. It’s also home to a number of waterfalls, including the popular and beautiful Sweets (or Sweet’s) Falls.

If you are looking for an adventure in West Virginia (and have some experience with kayaking), add a rafting trip along the Upper Gauley River (and Sweets Falls) in West Virginia to your bucket list. The trip takes some planning, but it is definitely worth it. ACE Adventure Resort offers guided float trips along both the Upper and Lower Gauley; learn more at the resort’s website.
