Blue Rock section of the Tennessee Buffalo River

August 31, 2019  Trip Leader: Beverly Hollingsworth

This is an easy, class I river, great to enjoy on a hot day.   The drive from Memphis to the launch area is about 133 miles.  This is planned as a day trip, but some will camp overnight  in the RV park on site. 

We will take a leisurely paddle from Crazy horse Canoe Rental and Recreational Park down to the Blue Rock at Slink Shoals.  It's about 8 miles and will take 2.5 to 3 hours.  Bring a lunch to eat on a sandbar.

After the paddle, we will meet in Waynesboro for an early dinner
