Cathead Creek Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Cathead Creek is a tributary of the Altamaha River above Darien. It drains part of Buffalo Swamp, a rare tidal forest containing bald cypress, sweet black gum, and water tupelo. Cathead Creek ?ows for 8 miles through an undeveloped section of McIntosh County that was once cultivated with rice for more than a hundred years.

Today paddlers can explore the irrigation canals of the abandoned rice ?elds, which are overgrown with freshwater vegetation and abundant with wildlife. The ?elds and swamps are inundated twice a day by the tides, which average about 7 feet."
