Paddling the Lower Elk, also known as the Elk River Gorge, has long been revered as one of the best and most challenging Class V rivers in the North Carolina High Country. The Elk River Gorge is located in the high country of North Carolina close to Boone and the many waterfalls that make this river such a spectacular kayaking destination also draw big crowds during the summer for swimming and fishing — one visit to Elk River Falls, Compression Falls or Twisted Falls and it’s easy to see why as this is truly one of the most beautiful river gorges in all of Western North Carolina. Check out this Elk River Gorge Kayaking Video from the folks over at The Green River Games + Home On The James and get inspired to get outside, whether it’s running Class V or just making the hike in to check out the falls.
