Don’t let the name of this creek scare you. The story behind how the creek got its name is murky anyhow. Murder Creek is a fun Class II run, one that’s rarely visited by the Atlanta paddlers who don’t live far from it. The water quality seems great, thanks to headwaters that rise in the rural north end of Jasper County, short of Atlanta’s exurbs. The creek passes through a forest that’s only occasionally interrupted by streamside houses, before plunging into Lake Sinclair.
