Section III - Full Day

This exciting class III whitewater run is a classic in the Southeast.  Come enjoy nine miles of one of the
oldest watersheds in the world as you paddle down a corridor of green trees and large boulders.  
Numerous class II and III rapids culminate with the class IV Bulls Sluice (easily scouted and walked)
right before the 76 bridge take-out.  This river trip is appropriate for those with previous whitewater rafting
experience and those going with experienced individuals.
