Slip your canoe paddle into the tranquil waters of the French Broad and ease your way down stream as the day’s light fades to dusk. The sounds and life of the river this time of day just can’t be compared! You’ll paddle 8 miles, approximately 4 hours downstream through what many claim as the most beautiful section of the French Broad River. Watch the different bird life glide through the air in hunt of their last meal of the day, be it an insect zipping through the wind or a fish splashing through the current around you. Catch a glimpse of the beaver’s tail as he escapes into dark recesses of the river in search of his burrows entrance. Every trip provides the opportunity for a wide array of wildlife observation around every bend.
