The Little Tallapoosa charms paddlers on the southwest edge of the Piedmont as it passes through the hills southwest of Carrollton. The Tallapoosa and the Little Tallapoosa shadow each other as separate rivers in Georgia, both heading southwest into Alabama. It’s only well after crossing into Alabama that the two meet in a reservoir. In Georgia, the Little Tallapoosa is not much more than a large creek, 40–50 feet in width. Trees shade the river corridor, tipping inward toward the center of the stream. In this run, the Little Tallapoosa winds through agricultural land that consists mostly of pastures, cattle, and horses interspersed with young forest.
