Goshen Pass is a magnificent mountain gorge three miles long that was formed by the Maury River. Visitors here enjoy swimming, tubing, canoeing, fishing, picnicking and walking the trail on the north side of the river.

This part of the Maury River is some of the most popular whitewater in Virginia and is rated at a high difficulty. Kayakers and canoers can experience six miles of numerous class II, class III, and two class IV rapids, specifically Devil’s Kitchen and Corner Rapid.

Rockbridge County native and TV personality Willard Scott calls Goshen Pass "the most dramatic river/rock scenery east of the Mississippi."
