Canoeing picture family canoeing
HELLO canoeing friends! Eagles Nest Outfitters welcomes you to the Monongahela National Forest, comprised of 909,137 acres of lush green mountains and beautiful streams. Come ride the South Branch of the Potomac River or the North Fork of the South Branch of the Potomac River and see for yourself. We have over 80 miles of river at our front door. As we enter our 21st year in business, we anticipate another great season on the river. For those of you who have canoed with us before, we're looking forward to having you on the river with us again. For our first time guests, our goal is to allow you to enjoy a fun filled day or two on the river. We are sure once you see for yourself what Eagle's Nest Outfitters and West Virginia has to offer, you'll want to come back again. We offer you the pleasure of good old West Virginia hospitality along with the wilderness experience of canoeing on our river.

The prices quoted below are per unit, per day with vests, paddles, safety lecture, maps and shuttle to and from river, without a guide. Two people per canoe. There are trips available not mentioned below.


Smoke Hole/Big Bend to Base

Entering Smoke Hole Canyon you will see Cave Mountain and Eagle Rock, two very noteworthy natural monuments. As you leave the Smoke Hole Campgrounds, you will enter the most scenic, most historic, and most famous run in West Virginia. This is the land of whiskey stills, Indian and Civil War battles, and above all, mountaineer pride and independence. For the most part the river is running through an isolated canyon of unparalleled grandeur. Mountaineer farms and homesteads add to the charm of the run, reminding the paddler of the fortitude and austerity of early settlers.

Smoke Hole Caverns to Base

This run into Base contains nice water. Many of the rapids are visible from the road, but soon the river tapers off to join its mama, the South Branch, fresh out of Smoke Hole. While leaving the mountains behind, it still provides some spectacular scenery.

THE FAMOUS TROUGH CANYON
Old Fields Bridge to Harminsonís

This is a very beautiful and popular canoeing river on which many organizations sponsor large float trips. It is an ideal river for novices or even a non-canoeist to run. The paddler will find himself entering the serenity of a deep canyon with 1500ft. mountain walls rising steeply from each side of the river. The vistas are ever changing and provide spectacular scenery in the spring and fall when seasonal colors are at their peak. There is very little white water in the Trough, but the scenery and the chance to see bald eagles in flight more than makes up for this lack.
