Kayaking

Kayak on the Little Coal River

While our area isn’t known for “white water”, we do have a very lazy river that invites the casual kayaking enthusiast to spend many hours venturing down it’s meandering route. The “Little Coal River”, and it’s Wahanda Trail, is a hidden treasure among our West Virginia Hills.discover-potomac-270

Starting in Madison (or Danville), traveling through Danville, Rock Creek (area), Bunting Road, Lory, and finally taking out at the Scenic Overlook (near Waterways Fun Park), there’s between 2 and 8 hours of kayaking fun for the entire family. If you start in Madison, there are “official” take-outs in Danville, Bunting Road, Lory and at the Scenic Overlook. From Madison to Danville is about 2 hours. There is another take-out at Rock Creek, near the DOH Garage that gives you about 3 hours of river fun (it’s not an “official” take-out, just a place where locals tend to utilize). From Madison to Bunting Road is about 4 hours. From Madison to Lory is about 5 hours and from Madison to the Scenic Overlook is between 6-8 hours, all dependent of course on your own motivation.

Looking to do a little Kayak Fishing? The Little Coal River has been known to produce some very large Muskies, along with Smallmouth Bass and Catfish. 530543_10201135258125292_441107093_n
