Lee county, Auburn Road to Bishops Bridge section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS III-IV     1 miles
1 rapid class VI. really exciting! Says Erasmo (see picture)

Whitewater rafting and kayaking in Alabama is often more difficult than elsewhere, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that many of the sections here are not safe for beginners. The Auburn Road to Bishops Bridge section of Little Uchee is 1 miles long and is a class III-IV section of whitewater according to American Whitewater. The scenic beauty of Lee County and
    the playfulness of the water are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. This section is very short so it's not like you're gonna spend hours on the river in one stretch. For all you camping people there are
campgrounds nearby. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way this area has a pretty small number of paddling places. The Auburn Road to Bishops Bridge section is one of a few paddling sections in this river system. Getting a good workout and just being out on the river for a while are great attractions for lots of people. The starting location is a short drive from Auburn-Opelika, there's a road map further down  
the page with more info on that.
