The 16-mile section of Kentucky’s Russell Fork River between Haysi, Virginia, and
Elkhorn City, Kentucky, is known as the place to go for the area’s best whitewater and
is home to one of the country’s classic creek runs. While the upper section runs between
class II-IV, an October dam release pumps up the fun to class V rapids in the stunning
1,600-foot Breaks Gorge section, also known as the “Grand Canyon of the South.”
