This Double Dam Training sesh is a point to point 13+ mile kayak event on the Chattahoochee River that is sure to be a great workout!
The paddling part of this event may START at Gerrards Landing (GL) Park, but the shuttle car(s) will have to be dropped off at the Morgan Falls (MF) Landing parking lot (where the event ENDS) before we get rolling. We'll drop off the cars at 4 p.m. at MF then scurry over to GL to get rev'ed up for a 13+ mile down the Hootch paddle. We'll go all the way to the dam just to get the extra view in, then reel things in with the gang at the MF & the HCO Paddle Shack.
This will be a 13+ mile paddle on mostly flat water. We will be going downstream, but there are some fast moving sections along Island Ford. This paddle trip is a workout and you will be paddling the entire trip and we're aiming for < 2+ hours of paddle time. Use caution at the shoals near Island Ford - they have been known to ding, dent & puncture fragile materials.
