Avery Mitchell Yancey
Route 1123 to Route 1321 section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.
CLASS I-II 56.8 miles
This section of Toe River is 56.8 miles long and is a class I-II section of whitewater according to American Whitewater. The nature scenery of Avery/ Mitchell/ Yancey County and the water flowing gracefully down Toe River make the trip here worthwhile. This is the only paddling stretch along Toe River. The beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains is a great plus for this river. A stretch of this length does require some preparations, so it looks
like you will be camping out. A bit of exercise and spending some quality time in nature are great attractions for lots of people. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in this state is often easier than elsewhere, so better not
forget that rivers in this state are not as hard as elsewhere. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination.
