Great Falls in a Canoe?

Has it ever been done? It has been a goal of mine, and I plan on giving it a try one of these years.

I would guess yes, but post your question here for your answer. - C1 B1!

I love to dance, but who needs the music- It throws me off.

Yes, Nolan Witzel ran it a few times back in the early 80's in an open canoe. And the very first descent ever of Great Falls was in the center chute back in the 50's or 60's by a husband and wife who paddled into it by accident and lived.

Many times

It used to be standard fare for advanced OCers. The Appalachian Whitewater guidebook has a number of pictures, including Nolan Whitesell and others.
