Miles 32 to 60: French Broad River Movie Update

This French Broad River Movie update combines two days on the river. We put in at the new Penrose Access Area at 170 Apac Drive, a street that doesn’t show up on Google Maps. We had to do a little driving around before we found it.

To get to the Penrose Access Area, turn onto Crab Creek Road from Highway 64 which is also called the Hendersonville Highway.

Turns to Penrose Access Area

Take a quick left on the Old Hendersonville Highway. Then Apac Drive is quickly on your right. Our mistake was continuing on Crab Creek Road over the river. When we crossed the bridge, we could see Penrose Access Area, but we couldn’t figure out how to get down there.

We put the raft in at Hap Simpson Park near Brevard and hoped we could make it to the new Penrose Boat Access off Crab Creek Road near NC Highway 64.

Here’s our video update of how the trip went:

Asheville River Clean Up With MountainTrue

I joined MountainTrue for an Asheville river clean up. Below is my video report of what happened:

My family and I are making a movie about the French Broad River, the people who use it, and the social and political issues that surround it. We Torgs are traveling the French Broad River from Rosman, NC to the Rankin Flats in Tennessee and using that trip as a narrative thread to “hang” all the other stories that we find along the way.
