This 12-mile paddle on the Chattahoochee through rural Carroll and Coweta counties features mostly flatwater with a handful of Class I shoals. It takes in a beautiful portion of the long-maligned river downstream of Atlanta where water quality has been greatly improved over the past two decades. The run is set to be part of an ambitious linear park with land-based recreational paths and a Chattahoochee River Water Trail stretching from Atlanta to Coweta County. This particular journey is a paddle through time that begins near the site of an historic covered bridge built by the former slave and famous bridge builder Horace King; continues past the site of Creek Indian Chief William McIntosh’s home and tavern where he was murdered by his own people after signing documents ceding Creek lands in Georgia to the U.S. government; and finally ends at one of Georgia’s largest and newest state parks–Chattahoochee Bend State Park. The trip is suitable for novice paddlers. Kayak rentals are available. Registration begins March 1. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER ONLINE NOW!
