Tennessee whitewater, Little Piney Creek

Rhea county, Grandview TenNorth to Piney River section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS III-IV(V+)     1.75 miles
  Whitewater rafting and kayaking in Tennessee is often more difficult than elsewhere, so you'd better keep in mind that quite a few of the sections here are not easy. The starting location is a short drive from Crossville, if you're not familiar with the area there's a road map further down the page. The nature scenery of Tennessee and the cool fresh water are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. Whitewater paddling here in
    the Cumberland Plateau Mountains is a great experience. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking in this general area you'll find lots of paddling spots. There are nice comfortable hotels here, but do book a room
before you come because it is a very popular destination. This is a pretty short section so better bring some good walking shoes. This is not the only paddling section in this river system, there are others too. Getting some good exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors are great attractions for lots of people. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground. This section of Little Piney Creek in Rhea County is 1.75  
miles long and is a class III-IV(V+) section of whitewater according to American Whitewater.
