Join UGA Outdoor Recreation as we journey along the French Broad River and through Western North Carolina! The timing of this trip in late fall will leave paddlers with memories of paddling through golden forests and comfortable temperatures. We will paddle and play by day and camp under the stars and by firelight at night. We will take it slow and steady, averaging about 5 miles a day giving paddlers time to hang out with friends and enjoy a relaxing Fall Break. This trip allows participants to practice their flatwater paddling skills, perfect their camp craft, connect with other students, and take a much-needed break after Midterms! We look forward to seeing you on the water! Registration closes on Wednesday, August 28th at 12pm. Register here.
