This will be a kayak / camping trip but you gear will be taken by vehicle to the campsite and then to your vehicle so we will be paddling with a lunch and drinks.
This is another first-time one-of-a-kind event. We will be paddling from Dahlonega to the Hwy 9 Scenic River Park near Dawsonville.
Day 1 we will paddle down and play in Etowah Falls then camp before the tunnel. Since it is only 6 miles from the Falls to the campsite we will Play & practice there for some time so bring plenty to drink. There is a 6 foot and a 2 foot drop that are great fun or you can just relax in the cool water and watch.
Day 2 we'll go through the tunnel.
Because this is a month from now the is no way of knowing what the water level will be. If it is too high, the event will be cancelled. If it is too low, we might have to drag a bit but the event will go.
