Georgia whitewater, Dodd Creek

White county, Ravencliff Trail to GA 348 section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS IV-V(V+)     3 miles
  The rivers for whitewater rafting and kayaking in this state are often tougher than in other states, so you'd better keep in mind that rivers here are less forgiving. The Ravencliff Trail to GA 348 section of Dodd Creek in Georgia is 3 miles long and is rated by American Whitewater as a class IV-V(V+) section. The put-in is not too far from Cornelia, as you can see on the road map further down. The wonderful Georgia scenery and the beautiful
    way the water current moves down the stream attract people from near and far. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. Great exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors have a lot of
people coming here. There are nice comfortable hotels here, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. This is a bit of a short stretch so better bring some good walking shoes. The wild scenery of the Blue Ridge Mountains is great. The Ravencliff Trail to GA 348 section is one of a few paddling sections in this river system. Since you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way this is an area  
with plenty of rivers for that.

Briefly about the general area:
The Raven Cliff Falls Trail offers hiking at its best, and a short visit to Dukes Creek Falls is always worthwhile. So much entertaining stuff to do here in the Blue Ridge Mountains, too magnificent to be true. Why not take a refreshing hike along the Appalachian National Scenic Trail; Dodd Creek is next to Unicoi State Park which is a beautiful site. This river is a great place to visit. Red Hill Gap is a delightful spot to visit nearby, and you're sure to run into some cheerful folks from Helen here. Chattahoochee National Forest is a great place to stretch your legs a bit; a journey to Dodd Creek wouldn't be complete without taking a look at Raven Cliff Falls.
