The Pigg River Blueway makes for a relaxing float in Franklin County. This Class I water is great for a nice fishing float or a leisure canoe trip with the family.
Starting at the 500 acre Waid Recreation Area, this eight mile float takes you through the rolling countryside south of Franklin County. The float takes about four to five hours to complete, making it the perfect weekend activity. The take-out is in Lynch Park, a 3-mile shuttle for your vehicle.
You will want to check water levels before attempting this float. Generally speaking, if the Blackwater gauge shows 2.3 feet, the river will be at the perfect level.
