The Bluestone River, named Momongoseneka by local American Indians, which means “big stone,” meanders a bit in the highlands, collecting water before it carves a deep valley on its way to the New. The best whitewater, rated Class 3, occurs in the 6 miles bracketing Eads Mill, hundreds of feet below the WV Turnpike Bridge. Anyone who doesn’t get “stoned” by this creek had better stick to TV football. The Bluestone is now protected as a National Wild and Scenic River, administered by the National Park Service.
