Class II French Broad, NC

Section 10 (Hot Springs River Access to Del Rio)

Wonderful day-long canoe trip with mild rapids. Popular spot for rented canoes, but also a wonderful float. Can be floated all the way through the next section down for a wonderful long canoe trip. Some camping spots along the way -- not sure how legal they are, so check out access to public areas first. Weaver's Bend is part of the Cherokee National Forest and has primitive camping options. Can be combined with the next section below Del Rio for a wonderfully long summer day or overnighter (or two, if you take it really slow). (Source: American Whitewater)
