Are you interested in spring creekin’ but aren’t quite ready for Over?ow, the Chauga, or lower Amicalola? Try Warwoman Creek up in Rabun County. It drops close to 100 feet in 4 miles before running into the Chattooga at Earls Ford. Warwoman is appropriate for solid intermediate-level paddlers, but the party should include an experienced leader. A dirt road, albeit a short distance away, provides dif?cult, but do-able, land extraction options. Unusually scenic, Warwoman is a good creek to practice eddy turns, side sur?ng, boat-scouting drops, and water reading. The water ?ows at a very rapid rate, helping to create lots of nice, relatively technical Class II rapids, even more sur?ng holes, and three signicant Class III drops. Scout the various blind drops, as they are technical and can be dangerous because of undercuts and possible strainers.
