Upper Green: An intermediate river (II-III) and a nice introduction to creeking. River time is about 2 hours with a challenging 3/4 mile hike out of the river, all uphill. There are two major rapids, class III, and several more smaller drops. Fun, isolated, beautiful.
This trip is for moderately experienced whitewater boaters who have paddling experience in Class 3 rapids. You should be able to catch eddies, peel out and ferry in moderately fast-moving water. (See AW river description link below)
Required equipment: PFD, helmet and whistle. Whitewater kayaks need spray skirts. Recreational boats are not permitted. A towel and dry clothes for afterwards are recommended. Bring drinking water and sunscreen.
Please do not just show up on the day of the trip; you must first sign up or contact the trip coordinator. Space will be limited, depending on your abilities and how many safety boaters sign up.
Meet at Home Depot off Harbison at 7:45am on Sunday. Any questions call or text Erich at 843-478-6451. We will be back in Columbia by Sunday afternoon.
