Not that I know of, but there is wafting! Wafting the Eno River

And a couple of opportunities to canoe downriver:

This time of year your only option is the Neuse below Falls Lake. With a little rain, you could also do the haw between 15-501 and US64, but it is currently too low.

Cullowhee is a looong way away. Kinda tough for a day trip. Also I think they are busting people for trespassing there now.

Took me a little searching to find what this was, but I learned. It's actually called Drift Falls, and it is on private property and is not open to the public any more. Check the wikipedia entry as I don't think I can link to it.

That was pretty stupid of me to call that a day trip.
