What you will do and see: This easy relaxing trip is ideal for families and folks of most ages. 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.
Great nature photography and a great opportunity to relax by the river while the kids play in the water and on the sandy beach.
