I'm taking a trip to Asheville, NC/ Smokey Mountain area. Anybody have any recommendations for favorite places to hit up. I'm mainly comfortable with class 3 low 4. Thanks

I'm probably hitting up the ocoee. I might get with ace kayaking school to try to step up my skills a little. Chattooga looks sick but I'm with my girl who doesn't paddle so I'm trying to go the safe route and have something planned.

I'm from the area

If you're looking for reliable big water class 3-3+ Ocoee is the way to go. Hard to time natural flow unless you're going to be in the area a while. Check out the Tellico in east TN. Solid class 2-3 creeking and the section above it (the ledges) is a sick class 3-4 creek run (when its running.) Also the little river through the smokies the sinks to elbow is a sick run but also takes a lot of water to get the level up.

Man the Ocoee was a super fun river. First time paddling in the south east. It's going to be hard not to move to that area.
