Alabama whitewater, Mulberry Fork

Cullman Blount county, Blountville Road to US Route 31 section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I-II     11.3 miles
I've been down the mullberry several times now in my canoe. I live nearby so it is fairly convenient for me to go. It is one of my favorite rivers to canoe on, as long as the water level is high enough. I love the peae and tranquility of being on the river, but at the same time it iclose enough to civilization that it remains conveient and reasonably safe, even for inexperienced or young ones. I highly recommend it for anyone loking for a
    relaxing overnite trip. Says HEATH

Just went today 7/5/09. It rained like crazy this morning and the rapids were great. Easy enough for sit-on-top kayaks but still intense. Great place to go!!! Says Caleb Kelly

owns the river banks on the Mulberry Fork. Do you go by the high water mark on the banks or does the land owner have the rights to middle of the river? Says Bryan

This stretch of Mulberry Fork in Cullman/Blount County is 11.3 miles long and is according to American Whitewater a class I-II section of whitewater. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Alabama are harder than the national norm, so keep in mind that quite a few of the sections
here are not easy. The wonderful Cullman/Blount County scenery and the playfulness of the water are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. You can enjoy this section more if you take your time, so why not pack your camping stuff too. The campgrounds here at Mulberry Fork are pretty good. A bit of exercise and just being out on the river for a while are great attractions for lots of people. The Blountville Road to US Route 31 stretch is one of a few paddling stretches in this river system.
