Open 9-5PM for Scenic Canoe Rides
Our trip times vary daily depending on how quickly you paddle and the generation (flow) of the river. For traditional canoe rentals on the caney fork river, our Scenic Canoe ride is a perfect choice, and one that provides a fantastic way to view the Caney Fork river, and a terrific way to escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life
6 Mile: Our six mile trip is the shortest trip we offer. It will take on average 1 ½ hours to 3 hours depending on the generation (flow) of the river.
Canoe the Caney
This trip starts just below the dam and you will paddle down river to a boat ramp access area called Happy Hollow. The Caney Fork is a beautiful, rustic river set in it’s own little slice of heaven and on this particular stretch, you get to enjoy nature at its best! This section is located away from major roads and houses so it is a perfect blend of you and nature. From the peaceful tranquility of the river, the playful cat and mouse game of the Blue Herons, and the casual glances from the cows as you paddle by, the 6 mile trip is a great reason to call in to work sick!
9 Mile: Our nine mile trip is the most popular trip we offer. This trip will have you paddling downriver from just below the dam to the boat ramp access area known as Betty’s Island. It will take on average 3 to 5 hours depending on the generation (flow) of the river.
Green Mile Train Bridge
On our 9 mile trip, the river changes quite a bit. Just past the 6 mile boat ramp, you will paddle under the old 1800’s train bridge that was in the movie ‘The Green Mile”. From there, you will travel under 3 sets of interstate overpasses. That’s right! All those times you’ve passed over the river driving to and from Nashville and thought about how nice it would be to be on it, here is your chance! Another favorite on this trip is the cave – this is definitely for the more adventurous explorers! Just make sure you have the right shoes for climbing if you are going to visit the cave. And last but definitely not least, keep an eye out for the Bald Eagles that are so often seen on this stretch! There is nothing quite like seeing one of these majestic birds take flight over our beautiful river.
15 Mile: We offer a 15 mile trip to Stonewall for groups renting 7 or more canoes. This trip needs to be scheduled 72 hours in advance and is generally not available on weekends.
