The North Prong of the Lewis Fork heads up on the slopes of the Blue Ridge and winds its way through the valley between Yates Mountain on the south and Judd Mountain on the north before joining the South Prong and running on into the Kerr Scott impoundment. The stream is primarily one of ledges, presenting a natural slalom course in several stretches. Most of the run is through a secluded area until the last mile or so, where it becomes more pastoral.
