Withlacoochee River Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A list of Georgia’s truly beautiful scenic rivers includes the Withlacoochee. Originating in Tift and Berrien Counties, its dark waters flow south along the Cook County line into Lowndes County, where it is joined by its largest tributary (ironically) the Little River.

Intimate, shaded in its northern reaches, mysterious in its beauty—the Withlacoochee is one of the few Coastal Plain streams in which limestone ledges form small shoals. A second distinctive feature of the river is the occasional white sandbar on the insides of bends, which are perfect for swimming or camping."

Canoed the river from I-J on the trail guide. River level was 53.67 MSL at the Pinetta gauge. Bottomed on rocks three times with little trouble getting over. One small stretch of fast water (fun, fun, fun) about river mile 18-20. Trip took 7 hrs with swimming and fishing along the way... Would be much better with about 6 more inches of water.
