Chestatee River Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This section of the Chestatee retains its mountain characteristics—cool, clear, and rocky—yet doesn’t dish out the tough mountain rapids. Leave the outﬁtters along high wooded banks. Highway 60 is audible in the distance at this point. A few houses are sprinkled along the beginning of the trip.
The river is about 40 feet wide, moving in small rifﬂes, and runs clear green over a rocky bed bordered with occasional fallen trees. The river is partly canopied nearly the entire distance. Yahoola Creek comes in on your right just 100 yards down and adds signiﬁcant water to the ﬂow. River birch, sycamore, and ironwood overhang the Chestatee, which widens to 60 feet in places."
