River Description


William W. Thornton 2003-02-18
Total micro creeking, not even worth looking at unless everything in the area is totally flooded.
Starts out steep and busy and soon a 'mini Gorilla' appears - a 6' drop into a fast flume.
Other memorable drops were a crazy 30' waterfall that landed in a log clogged flume, a big double boof slot, and a large 30' slide into a sloping slot.
The run confluences with Big Lost Creek about a mile and half above the Hiwassee. There is no whitewater to speak of on Big Lost Creek below the confluence.
