Savannah River Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"One of Georgia’s longest and largest rivers, the Savannah originates in Hart County in northeastern Georgia. Flowing southeast, the Savannah travels approximately 300 miles and drains an area of 10,600 square miles before emptying into the Atlantic Ocean near the city of Savannah.

The journey of the Savannah from source to mouth is a study of contrasts. Its headwaters originate clear, cool, and free-?owing in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Downstream, its mountain tributaries are dammed and impounded many times—perhaps more than any other Georgia river—before becoming the Savannah, where the Tugaloo and Seneca Rivers meet deep under the stilled waters of Lake Hartwell. Nearing the river’s mouth at the Atlantic Ocean, the Savannah hosts the second busiest container shipping port in the country."
