Cool waters, fast currents, and rock ledges create the perfect family adventure on the Hiwassee River. As a Tennessee State Scenic River, the Hiwassee is simply beautiful with cascading currents that can be enjoyed by all. It begins on a high ridge near the Appalachian Trail in North Georgia and meanders through the Georgia and North Carolina countryside before entering Tennessee where the adventure begins. The scenic setting and crystal clear waters make the Hiwassee River one of the crown jewels of Tennessee.
The 5 mile Hiwassee Adventure starts at the Appalachian Power House and flows West down one of the most scenic rivers in the East. For our adventure, we will be rafting along age-appropriate Class 0/1 currents with no whitewater, but still provides an exciting and fun ride for 90/120 minutes.
Arriving on Saturday afternoon, we will set up camp, enjoy some activities before dinner and a campfire ceremony. In the morning, we will have breakfast, and then take our rafting adventure. Keeping it short and sweet, but packed full of fun.
