Back To The Rockcastle

Posted by Spalding Hurst

May 8, 2004

Jay, John and I ran the Rockcastle river on Saturday May 8 th .   The level was at 600cfs.   John ran the Beech narrows, the class IV rapid of the river.   It looked pretty scary, but John made it look easy in the Blue Hole canoe.   Check the video below and pictures in the gallery.   The trip was awesome.   The Rockcastle is a perfect river to run.   The lake was up and so the last rapids on the lower narrows were not there.   But in all we had a great river trip.   Jay got his first roll on his third time trying.   I am a good teacher I guess.   I can’t wait to return.

Water level: 600cfs
