Alabama whitewater, Hubbard Creek/Sipsey Fork

Lawrence Winston county, FS 210 to CR60 section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I(III)     9.25 miles
  The FS 210 to CR60 section of Hubbard Creek/Sipsey Fork in Alabama is 9.25 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class I(III) section. The natural beauty of Lawrence/ Winston County and the cool fresh water are reasons enough to come here and paddle. If you've been whitewater rafting and kayaking outside Alabama you might find the rivers here a bit more challenging, so don't forget that many runs in this state
    are not easy. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. This is a pretty decent length section, good for a one day paddling trip. For all
you camping people there are campgrounds nearby. Since you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way in this general area you won't find many other paddling places. This river system has a few good paddling sections and the FS 210 to CR60 section is one of them. A good workout and just being out on the river for a while are great reasons to come. If you're coming from Decatur it's not a long drive at  
all to the starting location, as you can see on the road map further down.
