For a one of a kind experience join Thrifty Adventures in a Tube or Kayak for a FLAT WATER float trip on the Toe River in Bakersville/Green Mountain NC. This is one of the USA's last free flowing rivers and is also a world class trout stream! We boast views of the Blue Ridge Mountains with NO CROWDS and a unique experience to see wildlife including eagles, osprey, deer and perhaps even a hellbender! Seasonally you can see the monarch butterfly migration and rhododendron blooms along the rivers banks!
