Kayak Camp & Hike on Fontana Lake

We'll meet and launch our kayaks at Wilderness Boat launch off Greasy Branch Rd. Just outside of Bryson City.

From there it's an easy 2.5 mile paddle to camp site 74 where we'll be spending Friday and Saturday night.I'll leave it up to each individual to make thier own reservations.


We'll start our hike up to High Rocks around 9am Saturday Morning. This will be a 13 mile round trip with an elevation gain & loss of 3,490' which gives it a rating of difficult. 

Sorry if the info is a little vague but I wanted to get this posted soon as I could.

I'll add more info later.

If you have any questions feel free to ask.

    This is the type of trip I have been looking for, but I leave for Utah and a canoe trip on the Green River on the 26th. Hope there will be more multi-day trips.
