This whitewater rafting trip starts at Barnard North Carolina and finishes approximately 8 miles downstream in Hot Springs North Carolina. This is a chance to spend a big part of your day on the river. There is a stop for a deli / picnic style lunch, served riverside.
This section includes some very beautiful scenery through a stretch of Pisgah National Forest and the spectacular class IV rapid, Frank Bell's. Rafting time on the river for the full day trip can range from 3-5 hours depending on the size of the trip and the river level. There will be an hour of instruction, gear fitting, and transportation before putting on the river, and an hour of transportation, changing into dry clothes, photo show, etc. after taking off the river. This adds up to a total trip time of between 5-7 hours. Please keep in mind that this time frame is an approximation based on our 20+ years of experience on this river. Please let us know if you are under any time constraints.
Also, please be aware that summer-time river levels may make it necessary to alter this trip and make it a half-day with lunch trip. If you reserve a full day trip and we have to change it to a half-day with lunch trip, you will be refunded the price difference. Please call if you have any questions.
$70.00 ($67.00 each for groups of 10 or more. Groups of 25 or more please call.)
