Trout Run is a tiny slalom tributary to the Lost River and one of the best advanced runs in the Eastern Panhandle. It’s small and does not come up often, but knowledgeable paddlers keep it in mind during prolonged rainy periods. The first 1.5 miles is an easygoing Class 2–3, a good warm-up for the gorge below. Waites Run is a tiny tributary of the Lost River that comes in at Wardensville. It’s Class 3–4 with an 80 ft/mi gradient. It’s even smaller than Trout Run and needs a lot of water to become runnable. It’s a small stream, so scout carefully ahead for strainers!
