Born high on West Virginia’s tallest mountain, Seneca Creek starts as a very small, steep, and difficult run. Upper Seneca Creek is way up in the mountains, hard to catch up, and hard to get to. It passes through some gorgeous country, but getting downriver in one piece requires expert skills and a penchant for running high ledges. The lower section of Seneca Creek is a lively little ripsnorter and is a pure delight when there’s enough water. Its course traverses pastoral farmlands around the northern edge of Spruce Mountain, then heads east toward the imposing majesty of Seneca Rocks. Whites Creek is one screaming little creek run you can try when Seneca Creek is bank-full. You’ll feel like a human pinball as you crash through narrow slots, hurl yourself over slides, and dart around blind curves. Scout this on foot and check for downed trees before proceeding, then put on your elbow pads before you launch!
