Come join us for a cool ride on a hot day!

We'll meet at Powers Island (read directions carefully below).

We'll shuttle a few vehicles to Paces Mill for our return.

We'll stop along the Hooch at the jumping rock to watch (and optionally participate) in the hilarious spectacle that sometimes cannot be described...

Our journey will border East Palisades on the left and West Palisades on the right.  Many of you have hiked along these trails.

We ARE NOT PROVIDING tubes or PFDs - The NOC has an outpost at Powers Island: $30 rents a tube and a PFD. Currently Intek River Tubes are $19 at Academy Sports.   YOU MUST HAVE A PFD to float down the river.  You must be able to swim to join this event. 

We'll be on the river for 3-4 hours.  We will eat lunch (optional) at Park 82 which is just down the road from the take out following the float.  

Required Items to Bring:

Sunscreen, hat, swimsuit, water shoes, water, snacks.

Tube or other 'ride' for the water

PFD (life jacket)- must be with you (not neccessarily worn) at all times on the river.  There is a LARGE fine if you ignore this.

Towels and trash bags for wet stuff.  Change of dry clothes if you want to join us for lunch after. 

It's $5 to park unless you have a park pass



Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.

How to Get There:
Event Directions:

Riveredge Ln NW, Sandy Springs, GA

You should look at Google maps to be familiar with where Powers Island is (click the map link above AND ZOOM IN).  This address can be very confiusing in GPS systems.  Please take a look so you don't have to call us to guide you by phone.  It's right beside I-285 near Powers Ferry Rd.
