Come paddle with us down the Chattahoochee River!  We will begin at Island Ford and end at Morgan Falls Overlook Park, after a short excursion to Morgan Falls Dam.  There are a few small ripples at the beginning of the paddle, but then it will be calm the rest of the way. If we have gotten recent rain, the river may be moving faster than normal.  If the water is high enough we may take another excursion along the way into a beautiful hidden cove that we recently discovered.

This is a BYOB (bring your own boat) paddle.   See notes below for rental information.
