number of paddling spots. There are some good sections to paddle in this river system, the Rt. 71 to Lake Guntersville section is one of them. This is a pretty short section so no need to bring snacks. The nature scenery of Alabama and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water are reasons enough to come here and paddle. 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  

Briefly about the general area:
Griffin Gulf is a fine site to discover, and as expected, all our national parks are good locations to take a look at and Russell Cave National Monument is no exception. The cheerful people of Higdon like to hang out close by It's always glorious to pop by Gray Spring. This is such a great river. Everybody loves Cloudland Canyon State Park, and a journey to Gross Spring will fill your soul with splendid feelings. Have a perfect hiking adventure along the River Mont Cave Historical Trail, and don't forget to visit Hollaway Point if you're here.
