Hiwassee Canoe & Kayak Trip
Sunday, August 19, 2012


Brief Description:   We will meet at the Hiwassee/Ocoee River campground (Gee Creek Campground) at 2:00 p.m. August 19, to canoe or kayak down the river to Patty Bridge.  When we meet at the campground, we will work out our shuttle to get our vehicles to Patty Bridge in order to haul the canoes/kayaks back to the campground.  The river should be at low flow to make a slow and easy float trip.   Please make arrangements to bring your canoe or kayak, or use someone else’s.  Participants will need to bring water, snacks, life jackets, and any personals to make the trip more enjoyable.

Length:  7 miles

Difficulty Rating: Easy
