Whiteoak Creek is born high in the Nantahala National Forest between Split Whiteoak Ridge and Rocky Bald Ridge, a few miles west of Nantahala Lake. From its origin it tumbles steeply for a few miles, slows (somewhat) through a short valley, then picks up steam once more before joining the Nantahala. This last section is described below. Because of its small watershed, this run is available only after a long, heavy rainfall.
