Tubing in and around Asheville!

It is almost summer!  Time to start planning your tubing adventures!  The image above is of tubing “up” the French Broad River.  This trip is for those who like to relax and are not in a hurry.  Tie your tubes together and share your floating cooler with fresh brews as you float past the Biltmore Estate.  It is a slow, but relaxing ride.

For a more active tube ride try the Green River, just south of Asheville near Saluda, NC

If you want to make a day of it, tube down the Davidson River.  A perfect WNC active day would start with a hike to Looking Glass Rock followed by a trip to Looking Glass Falls, a slide down Sliding Rock, a picnic, and then tubing down the river.  All in Pisgah forest!  Just a 30 minute drive from Asheville!  See my link for “Hikes” for more information.
