Some sections of the river are deeper than others, but it does not get any deeper than 5ft. This section of the Clinch is very calm with  very mild rapids (kayaking only). Some say its the best part of the trip! This all depends on water level. For tubers, you will only experience small rapids at the end of the trip.
