I’m looking forward to the Hiwassee River Rafting trip on Sunday, August 26, 2018. The Hiwassee river is fed from TVA’s Apalachia reservoir. The water is fairly cool year round. On a 90+ degree day it feels great to get into the river. NOTE - you will be getting wet.
The trip down the river will usually take 2-1/2 – 3-1/2 depending on how much “play time” you want on the river. If you want to play on the river, reserve a Duckie. There isn't much playing in a tube or a raft. We will plan to be on the river at around 2:30PM. The later in the day the less crowded the river… a good thing. Here is the itinerary:
- Meet at Webbs Store 1:30 PM to sign waivers and pick up gear. If anyone wants to tube we will have to leave Webbs by 2:00PM. Rafts and Duckies/ Fun yacks can leave as late at 4:00PM.
- Get on the river by 2:30PM (ish)
- Arrive back at Webbs at 5:30PM
- Eat at Flip-Flop Burgers located just across the river from Webbs 6:00 or so. They close at 8:00PM on Sunday.
