River Description

Its an easy run, with maybe 20 class 2 rapids, but it is very rugged and scenic with a real wilderness feel. If you are tired of the same old same ole: Little, Clear Creek, Tellico, BSF, etc. then this might be going and with the right attitude, you will love it. it would be great for an overnight camping trip.

Good water quality, good scenery, little signs of man, and a long winding course of class 1-2 make this an excellent wilderness experience. There is a set of class 2 rapids in a nice phyllite gorge about a mile above the lake that was quite pleasing. You won't see anyone else, so if you are tired of the tourons on the little asking what happens when you fall out of your canoe and which way you paddle, upstream or down, then check this out. You can enjoy the river bottom's clarity and beauty without the honking horns and blasted rock of the other world. 1 hour from Knoxville.
