Cascades & Upper Nantahala River Releases

Upper Nantahala River scheduled releases for 2020 are brought to you by our friends at American Whitewater. Nantahala Outdoor Center is a proud sponsor of American Whitewater's work to conserve and restore whitewater across the country, and especially in the Southeast. 

The Upper Nantahala is 3.1 miles of road scoutable class III+, perfect for kayakers looking to advance their skills in continuous whitewater. The Cascades are 0.7 miles of easy to lap, high-quality class IV-V whitewater.
