What You'll Get
As the Pigeon River comes out of the steeper parts of the gorge it calms down a bit. Beginning at our outpost, the Lower Section of the Pigeon River is perfect for those looking for a scenic float trip of the Smoky Mountains. Stretching 5.5 miles of river distance and lasting approximately 1.5 hours, this section is beautiful and relaxing with a sample of whitewater. Class I & II rapids provide a great introduction for those not wanting to go straight to the Upper Section. No experience necessary. Take in the views, soak in some sun, and splash in the cool water on this ideal Smoky Mountain float trip.
After your guide double-checks to make sure all equipment is fitted properly, guests then take a short walk from our outpost down to the river where their raft awaits. After completing the trip, guests will hop on our bus for a short 10-minute ride back to our outpost where guests can take a warm shower and change into dry clothes. But, don't forget about the pictures! Each group has a series of photos taken. You and your group can check out your pictures in our outpost after your trip
