I was told by Webb's they are now charging $5 to park, so bring some cash. Sorry this is new!!!!
Sunday August 29, 2021!!! Let's Raft the Hiwassee.... I am having "Water Withdrawal"! Sign up to have some fun on the beautiful Hiwassee.....
This is very important, IF you plan to raft with us please read the entire email, however please pay close attention to the yellow highlighter areas.
At this time Flip Flops is closed... I am looking for a place for our "Group Dinner" after the raft down the river. I will update when I locate a place.
I’m looking forward to the Hiwassee River Rafting trip on Sunday, August 29, 2021. 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 1:00 pm . Here is the itinerary:
Janet Brooks will be our River Captain and guide.... Bob Trammel will be our "sweeper" which means that Bob will go behind all of us in case someone gets in trouble or needs a little help.
- Meet at Webbs Store 12:00-12:15 PM to sign waivers and pick up gear.
- Get on the river by 1:00-1:30 PM(ish)
- Arrive back at Webbs at 4:30 (ish)
