Alabama whitewater, Little River

Dekalb Cherokee county, Highway 35 to Upper Two section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II-V     3.08 miles
  The put-in location is a reasonable drive from Summerville, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you wonít get lost. The wonderful Dekalb/ Cherokee County scenery and the cool fresh water will make you feel great. The average Alabama whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be harder to run than those in other states, so keep in mind that a lot of the rivers here are not suitable for beginners. A bit of exercise
    and just being out on the river for a while are sure to keep you coming back for more. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, but if you donít have reservations you
might end up sleeping in your car. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this area has a large number of paddling rivers. This stretch is short so you'd better be prepared to walk your kayak back to put-in a few times. This is not the only paddling section in this river system, there are others too. This stretch of Little River in Dekalb/ Cherokee County is 3.08 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be  
a class II-V section.
