2084 South Chestatee/Hwy 60, Dahlonega, GA

This beautiful tributary of the Chattahoochee River flows out of the mountains north of Dahlonega and provides an easy 6.3 mile float punctuated with several very mild rapids. Paddle past banks covered with Rhododendron and Mountain Laurel, ferns, and wildflowers. Large River Birch, Oaks, and Sycamores tower overhead draped with Muscadine, Virginia Creeper, and Cross Vine. Shear cliffs slip into the currents that flow around the remains of old gold mining operations. We will stop at Big Bend Beach for a picnic lunch and perhaps a swim. This river is more beautiful than the gold beneath its waters. 

We will meet at the Appalachian Outfitters Outpost on Highway 60 near Dahlonega at 9:00 AM. There is a small shuttle fee. Bring your own boat or rent canoes and kayaks for the outfitters.

Facilities: Restrooms and changing rooms are available at Appalachian Outfitters Outpost. 

Difficulty: Suitable for beginners with some experience on rivers. Class 1.5 

Bring: Pack a lunch and we will picnic along the river. Sunscreen, a hat, rain jacket, and water should be brought along. Bring a day pack or other bag to secure items inside your boat. Secure valuables in a water proof container or bag. 

Our river trips are NOT so much focused on traveling from one place to another as they are on experiencing and discovering the river and the special places along the way. Our progress therefore, is measured not in time and distance, but in delight and insight.
