Upper Green, class II-III

The Upper Green is a mostly a class II river with two class III drops that can be portaged. When we finish, there is a 0.6 mile long hike to the parking lot, which is probably the most difficult part of the trip.

To participate in this meetup, you are required to have:

Plastic kayak

Spray skirt


PFD and helmet (you will always wear them on the river)

Experience in wet exiting your boat (rolling is better :))


It's good to have:

Throw bag/line

Liquids and snacks

Dry/ semi-dry/ splash top

First aid kit

River knife


I have paddled this river with beginners and it was fine, we all had fun, which is the main purpose of this trip :)

We should be done with paddling at around 2-3pm.

I hope to see you on the water :)

    Great trip on the Upper Green. We had several folks on the Upper for their first time.
    The extended water release allowed for some extra time to enjoy all the surf spots.

    It was nice to see everyone for WNC Asheville.

    That's fine, Donald, we may split into smaller groups, but knowing that they are releasing the whole day, we will not have to hurry. In September last year we had a big group and ran out of water :)

    I have a couple of other folks that would like to join us. We can meet you at the Put In. I am also going to get a key. The Green is scheduled to release all day on Saturday at this time.

    The take out is at Big Hungry Rd. There is a parking lot for which I will pick up the key at Green River Adventure in Saluda before we meet.

    As I'm not familiar with all the rivers up here yet. The take out is on Green River Cove Rd. correct?

    We will drive to the take out first, leave some cars there and then drive to put in, so we should be there btw 9:45 and 10:15.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
