The Striding Giant Rapids was the name for a sections of rapids located around a petrified giant in the middle of the River Rauvin, just downriver from Everlund.[2]


Striding Giant Rapids was located just out of sight and to the west of Everlund in the Rauvin Vale.[1][2]


The Striding Giant was a statue (in fact, a petrified hill giant) of a giant stepping through the waters of the river. The statue caused a "snag" in the river.[2] The water in that area was considered rough; in the spring, runoff made the water deeper and more treacherous.[3]


Rumors of a terrible fate for anyone who disturbed the Striding Giant ensured that the obstacle was not removed from the river.[2]
