Join us for a beautiful morning paddle down the Chattahoochee River. We had so much fun doing this paddle today, that I want to do it again tomorrow!  We will meet at Azalea Park in the parking lot across from the Atlanta Rowing Club. We will paddle downstream for about an hour and 15 minutes, and then turn around and paddle back upstream to Azalea Park. We will explore the coves around Willeo Park and Gold Branch (where we saw many blue heron today), and then turn around and paddle back to Azalea Park.  We also saw four otters playing on the shore and in the water, while we were paddling back upstream.  


Please note that inflatable boats are not appropriate for this paddle. 


Required Items to Bring:

Kayak or canoe (no inflatable boats, please)
