Dirt road off Jewitt Road to Piney River section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 
  If you're coming from Crossville it's not a long drive at all to the starting location. The beautiful scenery of -blank- County and the playfulness of the water make the trip here worthwhile. The Dirt road off Jewitt Road to Piney River stretch of Soak Creek is -blank- miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class III-IV section. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking in this general area you'll find
    lots of paddling places. This is the only paddling section along Soak Creek. If you'll be staying in a hotel you're in luck, lodging is available very near the river, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels
fill up quick. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. Great exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors will make you glad you came. The rivers for whitewater rafting and kayaking here in Tennessee are often tougher than in other states, so don't forget that quite a few of the sections here are not easy. Whitewater paddling here in the Cumberland Plateau Mountains is a great experience.

Briefly about the general area:
 
Here at Soak Creek you'll most likely meet some folks from Spring City; Blue Spjring is a delightful spot to explore while you're at Soak Creek. So much entertaining stuff to do in the Cumberland Plateau Mountains, not sufficient time.
