The scenic beauty of -blank- County and the water flowing gracefully down Little Clear Creek beats anything. Since you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way this is an area with plenty of spots for that. The put-in is not too far from Harriman, there's
    a road map further down the page with more info on that. The Highway 62 to Lily section of Little Clear Creek in Tennessee is 3 miles long and is according to American Whitewater a class IV-V section of whitewater. This
stretch is short so it's not like you're gonna spend hours on the river in one stretch. 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. When you're paddling down a Cumberland Plateau Mountains river like this one you always get great scenery along the way too. Getting your paddling muscles activated and just hanging out with mother nature are  
great reasons to come. This river system is full of great paddling stretches, the Highway 62 to Lily stretch is just one of them. For all you camping people there are campgrounds nearby.

Briefly about the general area:
A short journey to Jacks Rock Falls is always worthwhile; Obed Wild & Scenic River is one of the destinations that are delightful to stop by nearby. These mountains rock, just explore all the fun things to do in the Cumberland Plateau Mountains. You're sure to bump into some nice folks from Lancing here; Lilly Rapids is a lovely site to stop by while you're at Little Clear Creek.
