The Big South Fork Gorge is part of the headwaters of the Big South Fork of the Cumberland River. Although situated entirely in Tennessee, it is worth including in this guide because it is a very popular whitewater run enjoyed by advanced Kentucky paddlers. Consisting of almost continuous Class III (and IV?) whitewater, the run begins on the Clear Fork (which combines with New River of Tennessee to form the Big South Fork of the Cumberland River) about 12 miles southwest of Oneida and ends at Leatherwood Ford, west of Oneida.
