Time to paddle the wildest section of Atlanta's South River. Most of you have never paddled the South River much less know where it is. Well here is your chance. The section we will be paddling is from Klondike Road to Oglesby Bridge. This is an 8.7 mile trip with some rapids and the wild Albert Shoals. For those who choose not to paddle Albert Shoals we will either carry your boat around or paddle it through for you. Skirts are necessary and helmets are good ideas if they will make you feel more comfortable. Albert Shoals has a 3+ foot drop off if you want to paddle over it.
Obviously the river level depends on the rains but unless it is in flood stage some of us will be going.
Don't believe what you read about this river, the information is out of date. It is as clean as the Chattahoochee. I started paddling this river 8 years ago and spend a lot of time paddling and cleaning it up. It's fun, it's wild and it's scenic.
Bring a lunch, plenty to drink and a dry change of clothes.
We will be meeting at the McDonalds on Wesley Chapel Road at 8:30 for breakfast and punctually leave at 9:00am.
