White Habersham Hall county, USFS Road 44 to Robertson section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II-IV     7 miles
  The nature scenery of White/Habersham/Hall County and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water make the trip here worthwhile. This section of Chattahoochee River in Georgia is 7 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class II-IV section. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking around here you'll find a large number of good spots. Getting your paddling
    muscles activated and just being out on the river for a while will make you glad you came. This section is long enough to enjoy a good non stop paddle, it's good length for a morning trip. The put-in location is a reasonable
drive from Cornelia, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you won’t get lost. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in Georgia is often more difficult than elsewhere, so you'd better keep in mind that many of the sections here are not safe for beginners. There are so many sections to paddle in this river system, the USFS Road 44 to Robertson section is just one of many. Whitewater paddling here in the Blue Ridge Mountains  
is a great experience. There are many good hotels to choose from, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set.

Briefly about the general area:
A trip to Chattahoochee National Forest when you're here at Chattahoochee River is never a bad idea; the smiling folks of Sautee Nacoochee like to hang out close by. All the outdoors entertaining stuff in the Blue Ridge Mountains will keep you coming back over and over. Going to Unicoi State Park in the neighborhood of Chattahoochee River is a good thing to do, and there's pleasant hiking along the Raven Cliff Falls Trail.
