Easy Whitewater

Cheat Narrows and the North Branch of the Potomac, which both offer  easy whitewater is the place to start.  Both trips are great for young children, first time rafters or anyone who is ready for a little excitement and a fun time on the river. These trips are usually class 1-2 rapids and sometimes depending on water levels will have a couple of class 3 rapids. All of these trips have guides in the rafts with you and can be done at most water levels in rafts or IK's (inflatable kayaks or duckies) we try to fit the size of the raft to the water level of the day for max enjoyment. All trips start with lots of instruction and water safety breifings. Easy Whitewater trips are fun for the whole family and a great way to start your rafting experience.


Cheat Narrows Trip

The perfect trip for the beginner IK paddler and rafter,  young kids, are those folks who just want a fun easy time on some mild whitewater. This is one of our intro trips with easy rapids and great swimming opportunities. This is a 3-5 mile trip depending on water levels and can be done in guided rafts or inflatable kayaks. We try to fit the boat size to water levels.

The Cheat Narrows is a great summer time trip because of all the swimming that can be done. Beautiful clear  clean water make this a great trip for all ages and abilities. This is usually a half day trip lasting about 5 hrs from start to finish but can change due to water levels. We meet in Friendsville MD, sign in at our riverside headquarters, after that we have a short bus ride to the Cheat river, then we raft and swim and drive back.
There are several class 2 rapids with 3 class 3 rapids depending on water levels. When the water is up to just rafting levels there may be an easy, fun , exciting class 4. In the early spring this trip is mostly waves and pools.

North Branch of the Potomac Barnum Trip

The North Branch is an excellent day of class 1 - 3 Whitewater depending on the dam release from Jennings Randolph reservoir. Great for the whole family!! White water nonstop action with easy rapids. The trip can be done in either rafts or IKs (inflatable kayaks). The trip is guided through 7 miles of continuous easy rapids with an occasional moving water pool. All rafts will be guided and the IKs will be accompanied by safety boaters. We show you the way and you have the fun. The North Branch can be run spring through fall with the low water float trips in the summer. IKs only in levels below 600 cfs. It is a great trip for the first timer as well as the seasoned pro.
