Black Fork of the Cheat River: Mouth of Blackwater River to Parsons Tannery Professional Review and Guide

"The Black Fork’s name, like its water, is the contraction of the Blackwater and the Dry Fork Rivers. Don’t confuse it with its untamed shrew of a mother—the Blackwater, but think of it as a chip off the old block—the Dry Fork.

This is an end-of-the-day-type of trip, ideally topping off a lower Shavers Fork or Dry Fork trip. The river courses between wooded mountains that are only partially spoiled by traces of civilization. Few maneuvers are necessary, but the volume and gradient combine to provide a rocking-horse ride over 3-foot, uniform standing waves."
