On Sunday October 22nd , 2017 we will be headed to the Etowah River in Dawsonville Ga. This will be the Dawson Forest section, which is one amazing scenic trip. Abandoned bridges, Bearfoot Falls, secret military bases, and radioactive rapids. Just a couple things you will see on the trip.
So on October 22nd, 2017 at 10AM we will meet at River Park (34.358088, -84.114115) This is a gravel parking area near Dawson County Middle School. This is public park with bathrooms. (well if you consider port-a-pot a bathroom) It also makes for a good starting point to our kayak trip as we plunge into the Dawson Forest Wildlife Tract.
The trip is suitable for all skills levels, but this is a long paddle of around 10 miles. So just be sure that you have the endurance to paddle the distance. We will be in no hurry but we will also not be floating for 10 miles. There is a small stream that forms a waterfall near the mid-point of our journey. It makes for a great lunch stop. So bring food and beverage and a good pair of water shoes. If you are feeling adventurous you can hike up the waterfall but you must have good gripping shoes.
We will probably finish our kayak trip around 2:30 – 3PM and transportation will be provided back to cars. Since there are changing rooms at the end, it’s a good idea to have an extra change of clothes. You may get slightly wet. It’s a great trip with lots of cold war era history along the way. Price for a single kayak is $40 (no tandems available) and includes paddle, life jacket, and obviously the kayak. Hope to see you there.
