This event is in the past.
Everyone loves the Nantahala, it's a special place. This year the N.O.C. Spring Fling will be April 29th/30th. There will be vendors on hand and boat and gear demos. There will also be a freestyle competition to watch or you can sign up and show off your own freestyle skills. Best of all, the Cascades and the Upper Nantahala will be running at 250 cfs.
The standard Nantahala run is mostly class II+ with one sure enough class III at the very end. It is good fun for beginners on up.
The Upper Nantahala is a class III+ (IV) intermediate run. You should have a solid, reliable roll to run the Upper. Swims can be long and bruising. The Cascades are class V with carnage likely to ensue.
