Class III-IV Nolichucky River, NC/TN

Nolichucky Gorge (Poplar, North Carolina to Chestoa Recreation Area)

The Nolichucky is in an incredibly beautiful, deep, mountain gorge that offers lots of great play, especially within the first few miles. The Noli's punch is at the beginning, then it mellows out to a mostly class III run allowing ample opportunity to enjoy the scenery. The gorge is remote with the only opportunity to walk out by a railroad track that parallels the river. - American Whitewater
