This This 9-mile jaunt takes in what is arguably the most scenic stretch of the Etowah River downstream of Allatoona Dam. The trip along the Etowah River Water Trail passes over numerous fish weirs, v-shaped rock structures built by Native Americans and used to capture fish, including one dramatic “triple-V” at a bend known as the Rock Garden. The trip is primarily flatwater, but provides a couple of thrills over small ledges as the river passes through the Island Ford area. The trip also passes Ashpole Creek, a beautiful spring fed tributary and the remains of historic Hardin Bridge, which, until 2008, was the last remaining iron-trestle bridge still operating across the river. The bridge pilings that remain predate the Civil War. The trip is suitable for novice paddlers. Kayak rentals are available. Registration begins March 1! CLICK HERE TO REGISTER ONLINE NOW!
