CLASS V     1 miles
  The average whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit harder to master in this state than those in other states, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that the rivers in this state are less manageable. The Highway 23 to Rickman Airfield Road stretch of Stekoa Creek in Georgia is 1 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class V section. Great exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors will
    make you glad you came. Whitewater paddling here in the Blue Ridge Mountains is a great experience. This is an extremely short stretch so it's not like you're gonna spend hours on the river in one stretch. The scenic beauty
