#1 WINNER: Whitewater rafting the Gauley River

Gauley River WVRafting “The Best of The East,” one of the world’s top 10 whitewater rivers, is the #1 adventure in the mountains. It’s only open for a few days in the fall, but the famous “Big 5” rapids make it unforgettable.

After all, it is pretty epic to paddle over a 14-foot waterfall.
