White Water Rafting

For the past few years Ferrum College has been making trips to the New River Gorge, WV and rafting down the Gauley River.

If you are not familiar with the Gauley River then you are missing out.

This is one of the best trips Ferrum Outdoors offers, and the slots fill up very quickly. Each spring the college takes a few brave individuals to the east coasts premier white water rafting. The Gauley River is the 7th best white water rafting river in the nation and 10th in the world. If you are looking for that serious adrenaline rush look no further than the Gauley River.
