Tennessee whitewater, Little River

Sevier county, Huskey Gap Branch to Elkmont C.Highway section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS III-IV     2.2 miles
  The put-in is not too far from Sevierville, as you can see on the road map further down. The Huskey Gap Branch to Elkmont C.Highway section of Little River is 2.2 miles long and it is classified as a class III-IV section by American Whitewater. There are many good hotels to choose from, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. If you've been whitewater rafting and kayaking outside this state you might find the rivers here
    a bit more challenging, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that the rivers in this state are less manageable. This is not the only paddling stretch in this river system, there are others too. Getting a good workout
and just hanging out with mother nature are great reasons to come. For all you camping people there are campgrounds nearby. Since you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way this area has a large number of paddling rivers. This stretch is short so it's not like you're gonna spend hours on the river in one stretch. The beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains is a great plus for this river. The wonderful  
Tennessee scenery and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle.

Briefly about the general area:
A day on the slopes of Ober Gatlinburg is just what you need, and Little River is a place with many visitors from Gatlinburg. This place, the Great Smoky Mountains, has so much outdoors cool stuff. Visiting Great Smoky Mountains National Park is just something you need to do if you haven't yet. Take a hike on the Sugarland Mountain Trail; nearby you stumble on perfect sites like Coon Hollow. Hiking along the Jakes Creek Trail is delightful fun.
