Chattahoochee River - Whitesburg to Franklin
We started out at Whitesburg, GA @ Hwy 16 and paddled down to Chattahoochee Bend State Park where we camped for the night.
This was a very nice section with class 1 rapids mixed in with flat water. Very easy. Day 2 we went from Chattahoochee Bend to Franklin. Again, mixture of class 1 & lower Class 2 shoals. Very easy to run.
Here is a video of the second day shoal sections:
Ramp was very nice. Left car there over night with no problems. Chattahoochee Bend State Park was a nice place to camp over night.
Mad River 14 Canoe & a Jackson Rogue Kayak
