This is our beautifully detailed, laser engraved and precision cut map of Gauley River, West Virginia with the following information carved into it:
The Gauley River is a 105-mile-long river that merges with the New River to form the Kanawha River.
In Nicholas County, the Gauley is impounded by the Summersville Dam, a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers dam, to form Summersville Lake. The Gauley River National Recreation Area is downstream of the dam.
The Gauley is run year-round by recreational boaters and from spring to fall by commercial rafting companies. The Army Corps of Engineers begins a series of twenty-two controlled releases the Friday after Labor Day, specifically for the downriver recreation. These releases are collectively known as "Gauley Season" and are scheduled on six successive weekends.
The Gauley is one of the top whitewater rivers in the entire world known for its “Big 5″— 5 unique, heart-pounding Class V rapids unlike any others in the world.
