Come join us for a paddle down the Hooch.  We will meet by the boat ramp at Garrard Landing Park, 8000 Holcomb Bridge Rd, Alpharetta, GA 30022. We will drop our boats and shuttle cars to the take out at Azalea Park, 205 Azalea Dr, Roswell, GA 30075.  Please be on time, as this shuttle will be 45 minutes round trip, and we want to be on the water as close to 11:00 a.m. as possible.

Along the way we will pass the Horseshoe Bend Country Club, the Island Ford Unit of the CRNRA and Riverside Park in Roswell as well as a series of shoals.

We will stop approximately half way, at Island Ford, for a lunch break.  There are restroom facilities available at Garrard Landing Park, Island Ford and Azalea Park.  Parking at both the put in and take out is free.

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