Itinerary:

PLEASE READ ALL - CAREFULLY

Come join us for a cool ride on a hot day!

We'll meet at Powers Island (read directions carefully below).

We'll shuttle a few vehicles to Paces Mill for our return.

We'll stop along the Hooch at the jumping rock to watch (and optionally participate) in the hilarious spectacle that sometimes cannot be described...

Our journey will border East Palisades on the left and West Palisades on the right.  Many of you have hiked along these trails.

We'll be on the river for 3-4 hours.

We ARE NOT PROVIDING tubes or PFDs - The NOC has an outpost at Powers Island: $25 rents a tube, a PFD, and a shuttle ride back to your car.

WE DO HAVE 5 EXTRA tubes and PFDs - FIRST COME FIRST SERVED - AFTER YOU SIGN UP - TEXT US TO RESERVE ONE OF THESE.


Required Items to Bring:

Sunscreen, hat, swimsuit (no nudist on the Hooch - officially anyway...)

Tube or other 'ride' for the water

PFD (life jacket)- must be with you (not neccessarily worn) at all times on the river.  There is a LARGE fine if you ignore this.

Towels and trash bags for wet stuff.

Water to cool you off - don't drink from the Hooch (I'm sure you've heard that advice before...)

Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.

How to Get There:
Event Directions:

5450 Interstate N Pkwy, Sandy Springs, GA 30328

You should look at Google maps to be familiar with where Powers Island is (click the map link above).  This address can be very confiusing in GPS systems.  Please take a look so you don't have to call us to guide you by phone.  It's right beside I-285 near Powers Ferry Rd.
