Dub Denman Canoe Trail

(Tallapoosa River Water Trail)

Water Trail Information

The Tallapoosa River runs 24 miles in Haralson County before entering Alabama, where it runs into the Coosa River to form the Alabama River and continues to the coast. The Tallapoosa River was a major population center of the Creek Indians before the early 19th century, but now most of the land surrounding the river is agricultural. Fishermen will find spotted, largemouth, and redeye bass, as well as several unique non-game fish species. The Dub Denman Canoe Trail was developed with help from a grant by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. There are currently two paved launch sites in Haralson County: Poplar Springs Road and Broad Street, both in Tallapoosa. There are three additional sites planned for future development.
