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 to whitewater for those not wanting to go straight to the Upper Section. Minimum age: 3. No experience necessary. Take in the views, soak in some sun, and splash in the cool water on this ideal Smoky Mountain Float Trip.
PLEASE NOTE: The Pigeon River is dam controlled. Scheduled water release days are from April 30th-Sept 1st. Pre-Season and Fall rafting schedule is subject to seasonal rainfall. For more info, please call us toll free at 877.642.7238
