APE’s Nolichucky 1st Timer’s Trip Report

worldkayak (57 min. ago) - Saturday, August 22, 2015, was the Appalachian Paddling Enthusiasts annual first timer’s trip on the Nolichucky River. We had a warm clear day with partly cloudy skies and temps in the 80′s for our river trips. The river flow was a low 390 CFS on the Embreeville Gauge, which made for a steeper more channelized run for our Gorge first timers. We organized both a Nolichucky Gorge trip (Class III at this level) lead by several of our top gun APE’s and a Lower Nolichucky River trip (Class II) lead by Debbie Briscoe.  read more...
