About the event
Hosts Meg Robertson and Rhonda Phillippi invite you to join an approximately 4-mile out-and-back easy paddle to the beautiful Burgess Falls.
We’ll launch from Cane Hollow Recreation Area and paddle up Center Hill Lake to the base of Burgess Falls. We’ll pass by Cane Creek and start near the falls. Once we arrive at the falls, we’ll enjoy some time to swim and take a break for snacks before returning to Cane Hollow Recreation Area. We will then have lunch and can hike and or visit the Appalachian Craft Center.
Paddlers may bring their own kayak/canoe/paddleboard. Kayaks can also be rented through Cumberland Kayak & Adventure Company. From Cumberland Kayak & Adventure Company's home page (https://www.cumberlandkayakadventure.com/), select "Kayak the Falls" category. Select the May 21 date and then 9:30 am CDT paddle time.
Please bring a lifejacket (lifejackets will be provided with rentals), water shoes for walking around near the waterfall, water, sunscreen, hat, sunglasses and change of clothes. Also, consider bringing snacks.
We will be leaving Nashville at 7 am. Park in the parking lot at Cane Hollow Recreation Area at the end of Cane Hollow Road (36.0328, -85.6214). Please plan to arrive 15-20 minutes before departure time.
Please RSVP so we know who all is planning on coming!
