Red River in Tennessee

Trip Overview

Put in at the park just of Tiny Town Rd.
Take out at Riverside Park.
It's about 7 hours.

Very little rapids; perfect for a beginner or parents teaching children to kayak. About 2 miles in, there is a tree that has fallen across the river, sides are steep and muddy you must climb over the tree and drag your kayak over. Rest of the trip is smooth sailing.

Want to point out that once you reach green way park, water slows down and you have to paddle most of the remaining three hours or the trip.


bathrooms 1/4 of the way down at Billy Dunlop park.
