Kaymoor, circa 1946, near Greyhound Rapids

Also known as Greyhound Bus Stopper Rapids, this Class III cataract on the lower New River is created by an outcrop of bedrock just beneath the water's surface. In such cases, the shallow bottom accelerates the river's flow. A similar outcropping results in the Lower Keeneys Rapids and Lower Railroad Rapids. Outcrops of the bedrock are visible along the banks. The Greyhound Bus Stopper Rapids are located less than a tenth of a mile below Hook 99 Rapids near the upstream end of the ruins of Kaymoor.
