Comments about French Broad & Nolichucky Rivers Trail MapÂ :
This is still a nice map that shows the rivers and gives a general idea of where the shoals are plus has some access points and plenty of hiking trails. However, I purchased it for kayaking and it is not nearly as detailed as the New River Blueway Map I reviewed. Good map, but if you are looking for the location of rapids and the classes of those rapids you won't find it here.
