Little River Canyon, Alabama Professional Review and Guide
"Located approximately 40 miles west of Rome, Georgia, the Little River Canyon is an impressive sandstone-granite gorge through which a sparkling clear stream runs. The Little River has deep mirror-surfaced pools, gentle ripples, and boulder-smashing, highly technical whitewater. The water is usually clear, with deep, shimmering, turquoise pools.
Cedars, pines, hardwoods, and, in spring, a profusion of wildflowers adorn the cliffs on either side of the river. Small tributaries plummet to merge with the primary flow, creating many intimate coves with excellent photographic potential. Paddlers shouldn’t become too enthralled with the scenic vistas, however, because the river demands your full attention at times."
