The Flint River runs almost exactly 50 miles, with its headwaters beginning in Tennessee around David Crockett Highway and emptying into the Tennessee River in Madison County, Alabama. The river’s water may be clear or muddy, depending on recent rainfall amounts. Generally its depth ranges from 2 to 5 feet, and its width averages about 40 feet (ranging from about 15 to 150 feet in places). The banks are muddy, with abundant green foliage, including parrotfeather, pondweed, and riverweed. Hunstville was once known as the “Watercress Capital of the World.” It lost that primary “distinction” in 1958, when a group of German scientists launched Explorer I, America’s first Earth-orbiting satellite, here. Huntsville then became “Rocket City.” As you float this stretch of river, you probably won’t notice watercress, but be assured it is there, just off the banks.
