Pick Your Poison Weekend
The Ocoee just finished its last commercial release this past Sunday but don’t let that slow you down. This upcoming weekend is going to be a fantastic one to paddle, or at lease watch some paddling. Here are 3 great options to help you get the most out of it. So pick your poison.
- The Green Race – Guts, Carnage, & Glory
I’ve waited all year for this race. It’s just a great time. Hike into the Narrows, watch some great paddling, and if you are lucky you will get a glimpse of some seldom seen carnage[sarcasm]. It’s going to be a great time, and if it’s your first time make sure you read the 7 Things to Know Before You Go to the Green
- Tallulah (500 – 700 CFS)
November 2 & 3 are the first of the fall releases for Tallulah. The Class IV-V river contains the famous Oceana slide. This gem doesn’t run often and would be an awesome river to paddle. Read More Here
- Cheoah (1000 CFS)
I think I have come to determine that this is my favorite river so far. It’s a constant Class IV-V river that is always exciting. 1000 CFS is the big release but it’s the best release too. I couldn’t find a really great video of the Cheoah so here is my first time down. I was pretty high on adrenaline then, at the time it was the biggest thing I had paddled. Read More Here.
Update: Here is a really sweet video of the Cheoah. It’s not running 11/3/13 :(
Bonus: Pick Any Two
As for me I am going to go watch some awesome paddling at the Green, and then going to go and enjoy the Cheoah. Don’t miss out on this weekend it’s going to be a great one for whitewater.
