Dan River: Pinnacles Power Plant at Kibler to CR 1761 Bridge (VA 880) at Virginia State Line Professional Review and Guide

"The Dan River flows off the crest of the Blue Ridge beneath the Pinnacles of Dan. It is piped down the mountains through the turbines of the City of Danville Power Plant above the community of Kibler. From the power plant, it wanders southeast through hills of laurel and rhododendron before turning northeast and entering Virginia just east of Eden. It then flows generally east until it confluences with the Roanoke River.

The Dan was named after Danaho, a Saura Indian chief. The Saura Indians lived along the river, with Saura Town situated near the junction of the Smith and Dan and lower Saura Town located near the former town of Draper. On the upper section in North Carolina, paddlers will catch glimpses of the Sauratown Mountains to the south. This range is one of the most eastern mountainous areas in the state and is home to Hanging Rock State Park. The park consists of rugged mountain terrain and has excellent camping facilities. The Dan is a North Carolina State Water Trail."
