Called the Upper Hooch, GA Hwy 115 to Duncan Bridge Rd
Class II+ with typical water levels (2-2.5 feet). At levels greater than 3 feet, it becomes a Class III - III+ run.
Very nice, near river-wide surfing area with extremely easy recovery area (sandy bottom) and neat ender spot.
Nice springtime laurel in bloom, easy put-in and take-out; there is a $5 parking fee paid to the state at the takeout.
This trip is for moderately experienced whitewater boaters who are comfortable in Class II or III rapids, depending on river level.
Required equipment: PFD, helmet and whistle. Whitewater kayaks need spray skirts. Recreational boats are not permitted. A towel and dry clothes for afterwards are recommended. Bring water and maybe something to snack on the river.
Please do not just show up on the day of the trip; you must first sign up or contact the trip coordinator. Space will be limited, depending on your abilities and how many safety boaters sign up.
