We start in Friendsville and walk to a great swimming hole 1.25 mile upriver known as the 'Great Ledge'. This great swimming hole has a sandy beach, several shallow areas for wading and some areas with a mild current. The walk is approximately one mile and follows the abandoned railroad grade that runs alongside the river. Your guide will point out natural features and tell you about the history of the area. If some members of the group are feeling energetic they are welcome to explore the trail farther upriver.
Great nature photography opportunities and great opportunities to relax by the river while the kids play in the water and on the sandy beach.
