The AOC is once again canoeing down the Chestatee River with Appalachian Outfitters. This trip has traditionally been one of our most popular and is an excellent trip for first time canoers.
We will be canoeing about 6 miles which should take approximately 2 1/2 hours. Highlights include remote and beautiful scenery and wildlife such as wood duck, great blue heron, beaver, deer, otter, osprey, turtles and turtles! At the end of trip, the outfitter will pick us and our craft up and bus us back to where we started. First time canoers should be aware that we will not have time for extensive instruction prior starting our trip down the Chestatee. After a few minutes of familiarizing themselves with their canoe or kayak we will start down the river. If you are unsure about your suitability for this trip please e-mail the trip leaders before signing up..
After the trip we will go into Dahlonega for a late lunch/early dinner.
