Artist's rendering of the proposed New River Gorge Bridge from 1973

This Class III rapid in the Lower New River Gorge whitewater rafting area is formed by the colluvial deposition of rock tumbled down the walls of the gorge. Flea Flicker is located a half mile downstream of the Fayette Station Rapids and roughly three quarters of a mile upstream of Ol' Nasty Rapids. Many whitewater rafting excursions pass beneath the towering New River Gorge Bridge on the approach to Flea Flicker.
