Laurel Creek - Laurel Creek is the section of water that runs through the town of Damascus, VA. It is most commonly referred to as the lower section of Whitetop Laurel or the Upper Section of South Fork Holston.
Whitetop Laurel River - Whitetop Laurel is a great creek for those looking to step up a level with their creek boating. The creek has several great rapids in the run.

The first section is from Creek Junction to Taylors Valley and contains some drops along with some other good rapids. The second section is from Taylors Valley to Damascus VA, this section is fairly continuous and has mainly cl II-III rapids.
Backbone Rock Park to Laurel Creek (Damascus)
