The Cumberland Plateau in TN has some great Whitewater but is rain dependent.

Daddy’s Creek, Obed River,  Clear Creek, & Big South Fork of the Cumberland are possibles for this trip. .  

Rain dependency is why there is no river specific river schedule for this trip.  Your Sponsor Bob “Big Drop”  Heckler has paddled all these streams for years, knows what levels are too much and too little to make a good float.  At higher flows these rivers will have some difficult class 3 and a few class 4 rapids so a solid roll is required for this trip.  In addition, due to the early spring timing,  come prepared for chilly temps even though it has been known to be unseasonably warm some years.  Different rivers may get rain and others none, so flexibility is key for this trip.  These are some of the most lovely waterways in the Southeast that don’t get the recognition other more reliably running streams get.  In fact the Obed has been federally designated a Wild & Scenic River and there are federal facilities including camping.  Bob will usually stay at an inexpensive motel but others camp.  Contact Big Drop for the venues & 411.
