Middle Fork River: Adolph to US 33 and Laurel Fork to Tygart Junction Professional Review and Guide

"At the start, this is not yet a river, as this creek rushes along in a fairly continuous Class-2 style. Further down, this interesting and lively little trout stream starts off quite tranquilly over Class-1 riffles past delightful little islands and then gradually changes character. The rapids become more numerous, more continuous, and more complicated. Passing the halfway mark, the paddler’s view is obscured by numerous boulders and rock gardens, making it a thrilling Class-3 challenge for the intermediate paddler.

As the State Park is reached, the intensity, but not the continuity, of the rapids lets up. The river is quite attractive, but the “Middle Fork Resort” halfway through the trip on the river’s left is quite developed, with a number of riverside buildings. There are a few gas wells and small, well-kept cabins throughout the run."
