The Nantahala Cascades has been one of those overlooked, roadside gems that most people don’t really think about.

So until recently, many paddlers had not had the opportunity to experience the cascades at full flow.

American Whitewater came through for us again, truly turning NOC’s Guest Appreciation Festival into a revived kind of Whitewater Fest with whitewater for everyone of all skill levels through the first public release of the Upper Nantahala and Cascades.
