  The Gatlinsburg to 1st bridge in Pigeon Forge section of Little Pigeon River - West Prong in Sevier County is 6.6 miles long and is rated by American Whitewater as a class II section. The beautiful scenery of Tennessee and the playfulness of the water have people coming here. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Tennessee tend to be more challenging than the national average, so if you're not from around here don't forget that a lot
    of the rivers here are not suitable for beginners. This section is long enough to enjoy a good non stop paddle, it's good length for a morning trip. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. Some people prefer whitewater
rafting and some kayaking, either way there are lots of good places for that around here. This river system is full of great paddling stretches, the Gatlinsburg to 1st bridge in Pigeon Forge stretch is just one of them. There are many good hotels to choose from, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. The put-in is not too far from Sevierville, there's a road map further down the page with more info on  
that. A bit of exercise and just being out on the river for a while are sure to keep you coming back for more. The river winds through the Great Smoky Mountains and you get great scenery.
