CLASS V     1.4 miles
  This section of Little Pigeon River - Middle Prong is 1.4 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class V section. The wonderful Sevier County scenery and the cool fresh water will make you feel great. The put-in is not too far from Sevierville, as you can see on the road map further down. The Great Smoky Mountains scenery is wonderful. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this area has a large number of
    paddling rivers. No shortage of good hotels, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. For all you camping people there are campgrounds nearby. This is a very short stretch so it's not like you're gonna spend
hours on the river in one stretch. The Ramsey Prong/ Eagle Rocks Prong confluence to Bridge at Trailhead section is one of many paddling sections in this river system. The average whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit harder to master in this state than those in other states, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that many of the rivers here are not very forgiving. Getting your paddling muscles activated and just being  
out on the river for a while will make you glad you came.

Briefly about the general area:
If time allows, Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a national park worth a visit, and you can have a good hiking adventure along the Messer Trail. So many entertaining things to do here in the Great Smoky Mountains, too good to be true. Everybody nearby loves skiing at Ober Gatlinburg; Cat Stairs is an attention-grabbing thing to distinguish if you're here. This river is so great. Going for a hike along the Lower Whiterock Trail will let you absorb the natural beauty of this vicinity.
