Flat River Professional Review and Guide
"The North Fork of the Flat River gathers water from south of Roxboro. The South Fork drains southeastern Person County. The two forks join just east of US 501, near the Person and Durham County border. The Flat must not have been named by someone looking at the sections described here.
The gradient is typical of rivers with Class I – II whitewater, and a couple of old dams provide Class III. Before reaching Lake Michie, the Flat flows through a scenic gorge, part of Hill Forest. Downstream of Lake Michie, the Flat does become flat. It is joined by the Eno River, forming the beginning of the Neuse River, in the backwater of Falls Dam."
