Bullpasture River

Home - Bullpasture River

Bullpasture-RiverBullpasture RiverĀ is classic Class III+ rapids located in Alleghany Highlands. The river feeds into the Cowpasture River. Paddling from the public access (Route 678) to the Cowpasture River at Bullpasture Gorge is 4 miles.

The gorge is a fun section and is good for intermediates or someone who just enjoys Class III fun in a scenic gorge. The rapids become more difficult the further into the gorge, so it gives those who are stepping up to Class III a chance to warm up.
