Canoe Trips or Routes


Confederate Flag to Confluence
Rottenwood Creek - This is a great creek in metro Atlanta, right next to the Braves’ stadium. Due to all the impervious surface, this creek goes often once leaves are off trees — though water quality is not great! At 250cfs, this is boney. At 600cfs, it’s nice surfing. At 1500cfs, huge holes form. Four main rapids: a large slide (Confederate Flag), the rapid below gauge bridge, a multi-tiered constriction drop (Aker’s Mill), and a continuous mini-gorge. Scout the man-made pipe hazards (and wood) before you put on—doing a bicycle shuttle is a great way to do this.
Lower Roswell Road to Chattahoochee
Sope Creek - Sope Creek is a fun sister run to Rottenwood Creek that is just as flashy. It is a little easier, noting-wise, however the hazards are a bit worse and the shuttle a little less bailable. Worth it if can catch both on the same day, however!
