Looking for a relaxing ride on the Jackson River? River tubing is a great way to get outdoors, see the scenery, and splash around, letting the river move you along. This trip requires you walk your tube about 1500 feet up a bike trail that allows you to float back over a 2.25 mile bend in the river back to our shop where your car is parked.
