Spring and Fall Trips

Great for families or anyone who just wants to relax down the river.

Visiting the Smokies in the spring or fall? Enjoy a beautiful scenic trip down the river! Our Spring and Fall Trips are available for ages 8+ in March – April and September – October.

Our Spring and Fall Trips are some of the best! Since water levels are less predictable this time of year, you may experience level III – IV rapids on your trip or you may experience a leisure trip down the river. You’ll enjoy your trip down the river where you’ll get to see all of the beautiful sights of the Smoky Mountains and have fun on the water!

Trip Times/Water Releases

March – April, September – October: Natural flow trips. Trips vary based on water levels.

Any day on the river is a good day! That said, natural conditions may affect recreational water levels. On certain days, river levels may be subject to natural flow rather than dam release. This affects all operators on the Pigeon River. On these days, customers per raft and other adjustments may be made to provide the best overall experience.

What to Bring

Spring/Fall (cooler temperatures): For optimum comfort – synthetic, quick-drying layers. We don’t recommend cotton – it holds water and wicks away body heat. Secure shoes with a heel strap are required. (tennis shoes, water shoes, sports sandals with a heel strap). Wool or fleece socks will help keep you warmer.
