Cumberland River

Posted by Spalding Hurst

7 of us paddled the Cumberland below the Falls this Saturday. The weather was great, a little overcast at first but the sun came out later for a beautiful day on the water. Everything was in, Last Drop, Screaming Right, Stairsteps, all the way to the class II stuff at Bark Camp.

We paddled all the way out and it wasn’t bad at all. The last 5 miles or so of the Cumberland is usually flat water, but now with the lake being low, a lot of that flat water is moving current. It took 4 hours to run, put-in to take-out.

I’ll be back on The Cumberland again this year, probably more than once. I have some video from Screaming Right and Last Drop up on YouTube.
