Whitewater Kayak Trips or Routes

Great Falls

Great Falls (Fish Ladder)
Potomac River - The Fish Ladder is the river left side channel of Great Falls along the C&O Canal towpath on the Maryland side carrying perhaps 10- 20 % of the total flow of the Potomac River. This section is a fun and high paced portion of Great Falls. Difficulty cannot be compared as these two runs deserve respect in their own right
Great Falls (Center Lines)
Potomac River - Center Lines (Grace Under Pressure/ Fingers) It is a spectacular cataract with some sweet lines, but when running it you are surrounded by all sorts of hazards. Know your limits out here and don't come without a guide and or very experienced friends. Center lines is an intricate maze that requires scouting, and choosing the wrong channel, or swimming could kill you and put access at risk for everyone. Please be careful and always have a safety plan, this is serious class 5.
