7 Blue Ridge Water Adventures To Try This Summer

The Toccoa is a great tubing river, whether you bring your own or rent a tube from one of the tubing companies dotting the area. If you’re staying in a river cabin, chances are you’ll be launching along the Upper Toccoa thru the Chattahoochee National Forest and above Lake Blue Ridge. This is a longer float, usually about 3 hours, based on the location of your cabin and the water level.
