Chattooga River Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This float traverses the most doable section of the Wild and Scenic Chattooga River, which forms the boundary between Georgia and South Carolina. The protected corridor of the Wild and Scenic Chattooga River offers unspoiled mountain scenery at its finest.

The trip is challenging for the novice paddler, although it is much tamer than sections of river downstream. That being said, this section does have several solid Class II rapids and one Class III rapid, Big Shoals. Be apprised that the takeout from the river at Earls Ford requires a 0.25-mile uphill carry up to the parking area."
