August 15th Boating with Bartram through Cowee Valley

August 15 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Boating With Bartram on the Little Tennessee River

UPDATED 7/24: We’ve reach capacity at this time and will start a waiting list. Please email us directly if you would like to be on the list in case of cancelations.

Join us for another Boating With Bartram trip down the Little Tennessee River. This time, we’ll find our way down the river through Cowee Valley.

We’ll put in at “redneck beach” at the corner of Hwy 28 (Bryson City Rd) and Sanderstown Road, and float through Cowee town, Bartram’s destination to meet his guide to the Overhill towns and the capital of the Middle Town Cherokees. Bartram described the landscape on this section as “one of the most charming mountain landscapes perhaps anywhere to be seen.” 

We’ll plan to meet at 10am to arrange shuttling. More details to follow.

Spots for this trip will be limited. You’re welcome to bring your own boat or you can rent everything you need from Alarka Expeditions, who will provide shuttling as well. If you will need a boat, please indicate so in your RSVP and Angela will follow up ahead of the event.
