Nantahala Beginner Trip Sunday Aug 25th
There will be another Nantahala trip this Sunday! The plan is to meet at the Patton's Run put-in by 11:00 am. Boats will be unloaded and the shuttle will be run.

If you plan to participate (beginners and experienced boaters alike) PLEASE communicate your intentions (no later than Thursday evening) to me (April Morton) via a facebook private message or email (

Carpool options include:

meeting at Kroger in Oak Ridge at 8:00 AM

meeting at Fort Sanders West at 8:30 AM

Foothills Mall in Maryville (near the traffic circle) at 8:45 AM

If you plan to carpool, please let me know, as we might not stop otherwise.

We usually remain at the NOC after the trip is complete to eat dinner and as such we get back late (typically 9:00 PM).

A couple of notes for boaters who have never paddled the Nantahala, the water is cold and unlike the Hiwassee, most of the paddling is in the shade. Regardless of the air temperature, warm clothing is necessary. Secondly, all boaters must have a river pass. River passes can be purchased at various outfitters or the NOC. Prices have increased from last year, I know the season pass is $10, not sure about the day passes (last years cost $1 that has likely increased to $2). The carpool group will stop and purchase river passes prior to arrival at the Pattons Run put-in.

Hope to see you this weekend!
