Piney Creek: Beckley to McCreery Professional Review and Guide

"This tiny tributary of the New falls off the plateau near Beckley. After passing the Beckley sewage plant, which adds more than volume, only an active coal mine and the railroad tracks indicate civilization.

The river, however, is anything but civil. The stream is in a very deep and intimate gorge— the intimacy of a grizzly bear hug! The streambed becomes multiple 3–5-foot ledges with irregular broken-ledge rubble and then gets worse. Near the take-out it levels off to a Class 2–3."
