Yellow River Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"An intimate river with a consistent Piedmont character, the Yellow River rambles south from suburban Gwinnett County outside of Atlanta, draining portions of DeKalb, Rockdale, and Newton Counties before entering the backwaters of Lake Jackson. True to its name, the Yellow runs high in sediment, resulting in a water color from tan to greenish brown.
The upper section has more gradient and contains some signi?cant ledges. Flatwater prevails in the lower section where the gradient is much less. The lower section includes two lengthy and impressive shoals, each one topped with an equally impressive dam."
