20 April 13 | Scenic 73 (below Elbow) to below Townsend | Little River, TN

Level: 2.49 - USGS - Little R. above Townsend, TN / 939 CFS Little R. near Maryville

Ratatat - "Seventeen Years"

A classic Smokies run with numerous access points along highway 73. Expect an audience throughout the run. Most of the river can be scouted while driving. The water quality is excellent. After the first few miles Laurel Creek will enter on the left forming the "Y". The added volume went unnoticed as the river doubles in width here also. We took out a few miles below the "Y" just before Lazy Daze Campground. A little further downriver is the Little River BBQ which has great food and could also be used as a take-out but the water slows as the dam is not too far away. The intro to the video shows "The Sinks" which are the start to the section above where we put in and not ran in this video.
