CLASS III     7.25 miles
Anyone done this creek lately? If so, please post, need info on parking at put-in, etc Thanks Says Don

This section of Talladega Creek in Alabama is 7.25 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class III section. The beautiful scenery of Alabama and the cool fresh water attract people from near and far. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this is an area with not too many other rivers for
    that. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in Alabama is often tougher than elsewhere, so keep in mind that many runs in this state are not easy. Getting some good exercise and spending some quality time in nature will have you
coming back for more. The starting location is a reasonable drive from Talladega-Sylacauga, as you can see on the road map further down. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. This river system has a few good paddling sections and the Skyway Mtwy to Waldo Bridge State Route 77 section is one of them. This is a pretty decent length section, good for a one day paddling trip.
