63 miles, Entire Upper James River Water Trail
Our longest trip, truly a wilderness river adventure. This 63 mile trip has it all, great rapids, scenery, cool campsites, impressive mountain views, good fishing, great swim spots and ends with running the white water section called the James River Gorge – Balcony Falls. Customers can resupply at the town of Buchanan on day 3, and Glasgow on day 4 of trip. Many Boy Scout groups do this trip as a 50 miler qualifying trip, combined with a river clean up service project. Due to the remoteness and difficulty of the rapids we carefully screen all groups before running this trip. Prior canoe experience required. *12 years old with adult guardian. Except for the 3 Day Buchanan to Snowden, and 5 day Iron Gate to Snowden that require 8 person minimum. See 5 Day Iron Gate trip as an example.
