Could anyone give me beta on a couple of WV creeks?

Hey guys, I dunno how I have never made it out on these, but if anyone could tell me a bit about them (pictures would be great!) I would really appreciate it. I know this is a lot, and I don't expect people to answer for all of them, but if anyone has info (no matter how brief it is) about any of them, it would be really helpful. Thanks!

I am sure people out here know those creeks but I would check out Boatertalk. More Eastern boating and hit up AW.

Assuming you are speaking of Mill Creek that flows into the New at Anstead:

The river has three sections that are often paddled. The first starts in the town of Lansing and runs parallel to the Gorge, crossing under US 19 and continuing on toward the town of Anstead. The majority of this section is narrow, tree choked boulder drops. The highlight is the tunnel under US 19 that ends with a 6' drop as you exit the culvert.

The second section is from 1/4 mile above the water treatment plant down to the bottom of Mill Creek falls. This section is characterized by shallow slides and a few bigger drops. Most notable are the long slide just below the put-in, Eye of the Needle, and the falls themself. The slides are all easy. Eye of the needle is formed by two large boulders creating two channels. The middle line is easier and the right line used to have a very large log in it. The falls are fairly easy assuming there is enough water.

The third section is by far the hardest and continues on from the falls down to the lake. There are multiple hard drops in this section including Headless Horseman, Old Mill, and several that I don't know the names of. If you are running this section you will need to have your A game and watch out for wood. Running the lower two sections allows for a good warm up on the easy stuff before getting into the gnar. The good thing is that the road parallels the run from the falls down.

No good beta on the other stuff.

Seneca and Red are both in our new guidebook, with complete directions, descriptions, and color photos. "The River Gypsies' Guide to North America." Link below:
