Class I-II Clear Creek, TN

Barnett to Jett (Barnett Bridge to Jett Bridge)

The Obed River system is a high-quality, rainfall-runoff-dominated watershed characterized by extremes in stream flow, both in response to seasonal rainfall variation and individual storms. The Obed River and its designated tributaries, Daddys Creek and Clear Creek, are located atop the Cumberland Plateau physiographic province in Tennessee. Wild whitewater running through 500-foot deep gorges offers boaters the chance to drift below rock climbers challenging their skills on the sandstone bluffs.

Clear Creek 5 miles to Jett Bridge. Class I-II with interesting rock features and views of bluffs. Caution of undercut rocks. In spite of low class- get advice from experienced paddlers or NPS Staff before running for first time.
