The Blackwater River Blueway offers a pleasant 8-mile float from Brubaker Park (Intersection of Coles Creek Road and Hickman Road) to the intersection of Jamestown Road and Blue Bend Road, and a 34-mile float from Brubaker Park to Smith Mountain Lake. From the Blue Ridge to the lake, drift, fish and swim while enjoying the beauty of Franklin County. The Blackwater Blueway also is home to the annual Blackwater Blackout, preceding the Pigg River Ramble.
