Pack your river shoes and sunscreen. Nothing eases a hot summer day better than a float trip down a cold, mountain stream. 

An hour east of Chattanooga, the Cherokee National Forest holds two of the Southeast’s coldest whitewater streams: the Hiwassee and Ocoee Rivers.

Commercial rafting, kayaking and tubing outfitters serve both streams, offering Class I and II tubing trips for adults and kids.

For a listing of commercial tubing outfitters, visit the links section on each river page.
