Let's paddle the Hooch, Section 6+, Johnson Ferry to Pace's Mill! Again

The plan is to meet up at put in, Johnson Ferry boat ramp in the Chattahoochee National Recreation Area, on Saturday (Mar 1) morning at 0930 hours. We will drop all gear at put in, proceed to take out (Paces Mill boat ramp) with as many vehicles as possible, return to put in with as few vehicles as possible, and enjoy this 7-mile run replete with class I-II rapids . We will take at least one break to enjoy lunch near the pallisades. For those unfamiliar with the NRA, you need a season's pass (25 bux), a daily pass (3 bux)--or to leave your vehicle at home. Dress for the weather, of course, and for the water as well in the event that you think that you may go for a little March swim. Here's the link to a map of our put in at the NRA, J.Ferry park https://maps.google.com/maps?q=33%C2%B056'42.34%22N,+84%C2%B024'22.18%22W&hl=en&ie=UTF8&sll=33.966925,-84.391458&sspn=0.010571,0.023046&t=h&z=16 ..., and here's the link to AWA's description of this sweet stretch of River ...http://www.americanwhitewater.org/content/River/detail/id/474/#tab-flow . Please feel free to discuss on this website, and contact me if you have questions or concerns ( [masked] , [404][masked]).

    Hi guys! I want to take my son (almost 16 years), does anybody have a spare kayak I can borrow? or is there a rental place? thank you!

    February 26, 2014

    • Mutiara T.

      Thanks Andy, we borrow another kayak from our neighbor. We are good to go, see you Saturday!

  • Beth M.

    Does it require a helmet, rolls, and a skirt? Or can it be navigated in an ocean trident?

    February 26, 2014

  • Meg A.

    Will we proceed in a leisurely fashion?
