Willow Grove, PA (PRWEB) July 13, 2010
Even as temperatures rise across much of the country, whitewater rafting enthusiasts are looking ahead to thrilling autumn rafting trips on the world renowned Gauley River. While the river can be run at other times of the year, "Gauley Season" is a particularly exciting, 22-day schedule of water releases in September and October.
Famous for steep drops, tight moves, and thrilling Class V rapids, the Gauley River attracts more than 35,000 paddlers a year. There are two sections on the Gauley River – upper and lower. While the Lower Gauley might best be described as a scenic thrill ride that is suited for first time rafters, the Upper Gauley has been called North America's most intense and exciting river experience.
