Alabama whitewater, Lick Creek

Cullman county, State Route 91 to County Road 783 section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II-III     2.9 miles
I seen where to pit in at on Google earth but I cant seem to locate the place to pull out. Says Derrick Attaway

The sections for whitewater rafting and kayaking here in Alabama are often more challenging than in other states, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that rivers here are not as easy as elsewhere. The scenic beauty of Alabama and the playfulness of the water are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle.
    Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way this is an area with plenty of rivers for that. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem and
if you make reservations in advance you're all set. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. The State Route 91 to County Road 783 stretch of Lick Creek in Cullman County is 2.9 miles long and is a class II-III section of whitewater according to American Whitewater. This is a somewhat short section so better bring some good walking shoes. If you're coming from Cullman it's not a long drive at all to the starting location, as you can see  
on the road map further down. Getting a good workout and a chance to spend some time outdoors will make you glad you came.
