RAPID NAME: Rattlesnake
RAPID RATING: Class III
RIVER SECTION: Lower Gauley
This scenic rapid can be entered from both the left and and right side of an island that splits the current. The more exciting lines are found from the left entrance as there is a nice broken ledge system to navigate. Stay out of the sieved out rocks on the far left bank though.
