At the end of March, elite slalom paddlers and wild water racers will converge on the Nantahala River for this year’s Whitewater US Open hosted by the Nantahala Racing Club. The precision and speed with which these boaters maneuver within the falls is a sight to be seen. Spectators are welcome to enjoy the race from the paved walkway along Nantahala Falls just upriver from the NOC‘s River’s End Restaurant. This is a Forest Service path and offers great views for both races.
