This trip can be broken down into much shorter sections....or possibly done as an overnight trip. There is a popular tubing section thru downtown Helen. This section of the river is mostly flatwater.

WARNING! Just south of Helen, Unicoi Outfitters has a sign posted across the river that states that
it is a private river and violators will be prosecuted. You cannot get out right there without
crossing other people's property so we had to continue on about 1000 feet before we could exit.
After we drug out boats up to the road we were confronted by a gentleman that was generally nice;
however, threatening claimed that he was on the phone with the Police. If you are going through
this section, make sure that you get out just before Unicoi Outfitters at the Helen Waterpark. I'm
not sure at what point you can put back in. Might even want to consider not patronizing Unicoi
Outfitters since they have cut this section off to boaters.
