Trip Overview

We put in at Mount Tabor Bridge, Covington GA. and out at Porterdale, Yellow River Park. There is signs that indicate river access at both locations. There gravel parking at both locations. This trip on the Yellow River was a gWe did have to get out of kayaks to walk on shoreline to go around a HUGH pipe that ran across the river and one giant tree that had fallen. At the I-20 bridge a person kayaking flip their kayak and lost their paddle (I was able to retrieve it and return to them) and phone(couldn't find) so there are some rocks and trees you should try to avoid. This was a 6 mile trip. It took 2 1/2 - 3 hours with light paddling. We only saw 5 people until Porterdale then a few more folks swimming and floating. Very quiet and peaceful. We will do it again! reat little river to relax and take in a beautiful day, tree line, birds, and turtles.
