The public is invited to participate in a free, four-hour, kayak tour with a ranger on Friday, Aug. 31 at 9 a.m.
National Park Partners and the Friends of Outdoor Chattanooga will sponsor an event where visitors
will paddle down the Tennessee River, around the tip of Moccasin Bend, while learning about the
much needed supply line to help lift the Confederate siege of Chattanooga. This is a kayak tour following the same route as the USsoldiers who opened the famous “Cracker Line” during the Civil War," officials said.
The following reservation and paddler requirements must be met prior to tour participation.
Directions to the launch site will be given with a reservation confirmation. To make a reservation,
contact Outdoor Chattanooga at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 423-643-6888.
Participants must be 14 years of age or older. Participants must know how to swim.
Outdoor Chattanooga and the National Park Service reserve the right to cancel a trip at any time at
their discretion, due to weather or water conditions. Participants will be notified as soon as possible if
there is a cancellation, with a rain date of Sept. 7. If you must cancel your reservation for any
reason, try to do so with a minimum of 24 hours’ notice. Call between the hours of 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday – Friday to cancel a reservation.
