The Georgia High Country publication recently released 14 Awesome Paddling Adventures in Northwest Georgia and Georgia’s other Chattooga River made the list.
Guess what?! There are two Chattooga Rivers in Georgia! The most noted is located in Northeast Georgia and best suited for whitewater paddling, but the Chattooga River near Lyerly in Northwest Georgia is great for a leisurely paddle and family adventure.
Fishermen also enjoy this river hoping to catch bass, striper, and catfish. Also called the Lower Chattooga River Canoe/Kayak Trail, a 7.5 mile paddle begins at the launch on Lyerly Dam Road in the Town of Lyerly, Georgia, and is usually a 6 hour trip to the take out point on Holland-Chattoogaville Road below Lyerly.
Cities listed in the article include Lyerly and Summerville.
Northwest Georgia is brimming with outdoor adventure including lakes and rivers for fun family paddle outings as well as for those who are looking for a challenge.
