The Bull Pen Bridge to Burrell's Ford section is currently illegal to paddle due to some legal issues. AW has deemed it safe but you can get in legal trouble if you paddle here. Says Bob

Here at Chattooga River you'll in all probability meet some people from Cashiers, and there are fine spots to look at along the Ellicott Rock Trail. All the outdoors fun things in the Blue Ridge Mountains will keep you coming back persistently. The beauty
    of mother nature reveals herself at Spoonauger Falls, and a trip to Oconee State Park is a great idea. This river is so perfect. Skiing at Scaly Mountain is one of those things you just have to do. Going to Francis Marion-Sumter
National Forests in close proximity to Chattooga River is a good thing to do; Ellicott Rock is a great spot to check out while in the region. Jim Harden Gap is a glorious place to visit near Chattooga River, and don't leave Chattooga River without first paying a visit to Kings Creek Falls. That right there is a lot already, but it keeps on going; Chattooga River has it all. Don't leave Chattooga River without first going for a hike along the
