About this event:
Lower Green is a 6 mile, class 2 paddle with some nice play spots.
Drive time is about 1 hr 42 min from Smoky Mtn Meadows campground.
Plan to leave Smoky Mountain Meadows campground by 9:00 am to arrive and be ready to run shuttle from Fishtop Access (put-in) at 11:00am. We’ll take cars to the take-out, then be ready to put on when the water arrives between 11:30 and noon.
Both the put-in and take out are short and easy walks between the parking lot and river.
Put-in: 35.264064, -82.324536 (Fishtop Access, Green River Cove Rd, Saluda NC)
Take-out: 35.309510, -82.260786
It is very unlikely we’ll be back in time for the BBQ dinner at 6:30p at the campground Saturday night.
We’ll probably be stopping for dinner on the way back, as this group plays a lot!
We can figure out Sat am how many cars we need to take. Looks like we’ll have warm temps in the 80’s and good weather for the trip.
