Note: This is an "EXPLORATORY" trip. This means that there are parts of this trip, or perhaps the whole trip, that is new to your Trip Leader(s). However, they are confident that this will not be an issue.
This note is here so that you can make an informed decision. When a Trip Leader isn't personally familiar with a trip, there is an increased chance of things not going as planned and you need to be prepared. The Trip Leader may have additional details in the itinerary.
Join us as we paddle the "Eagle's Beak" section of the Etowah river.
This section of river lies between the take out of the Dawson Forest section and the new Forsyth park Eagle's Beak where there is a newly constructed launch ramp. It is a fairly mellow section, only requiring 60 cfs to navigate comfortably.
Though the river leaves behind the protected corridor formed by the Dawson Forest Wildlife Management Area, the seven miles from Kelly remains rural and the river banks undeveloped. Perhaps for that reason it and the land surrounding it are the play places for some unique recreational pursuits, including gold mining, gun clubs and remote control airplanes clubs. The river runs calm with no significant shoals or rapids, though occasionally strainers can block all, or a portion, of the river. http://www.etowahwatertrail.org/wp-includes/pdf/guides/eagles-beak-guide.pdf
