Chattooga River Wild and Scenic Section

Water Trail DescriptionGA Water Trail Logo Web Reg Font Bigger
58 miles of the Chattooga River were designated as a National Wild and Scenic River in 1974. Wild and Scenic designation keeps rivers in a free-flowing condition by protecting them from bedrock and flow alteration, and development
 within ¼ mile of the river.   There are multiple access points along the Wild & Scenic River Corridor.  The Chattooga River includes calm sections and extreme whitewater, so knowledge of the river’s different sections is advised.  Most of the land surrounding the Wild & Scenic Chattooga River Corridor is managed by the US Forest Service.
