Date: Friday – Sunday, Sept. 29 – Oct. 1
Cost: $144/$158
Registration Deadline: Friday, Sept. 15

Pre-Trip Meeting: Tuesday, 9/26 at 6:00 pm at the ORC

This trip starts with a 5 hour drive, but it is worth it! We will camp in or near Tallulah Gorge State Park on Friday night. For the hike, we will descend 1,200 stairs to the gorge floor where hiking turns into rock hopping from boulder to boulder. Waterfalls come down on each side of the gorge and one leads to a natural water slide. This 3.5 mile hike is absolutely gorgeous and is rated moderately strenuous (due to the stairs). After, we will drive to the Ocoee River to camp. Whitewater rafting on the Ocoee River is packed with fun and excitement on back to back class III and IV rapids. On Sunday, we will be guided down the mighty Middle Ocoee in rafts of 5-6 paddlers each. No experience is necessary. Please bring $5 cash to tip your raft guide.

Estimated trip duration: 2 pm Fri. – 7 pm Sun.
