Georgia whitewater, Mud Creek

Habersham Hall county, Road to Chatahoochee section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II-III     4 miles
  The average Georgia whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be harder to run than those in other states, so don't forget that rivers here are less forgiving. The Road to Chatahoochee stretch of Mud Creek is 4 miles long and is according to American Whitewater a class II-III section of whitewater. There's camping available near Mud Creek. The scenic beauty of Habersham/Hall County and the playfulness of the water are in themselves reasons
    enough to come here to paddle. The starting location is a short drive from Cornelia, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. On this section you do get some distance, you can easily run it on an
afternoon. If you'll be staying in a hotel you're in luck, lodging is available very near the river, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. The beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains scenery is an added bonus. Getting a good workout and just hanging out with mother nature are sure to keep you coming back for more. There are some good sections to paddle in this river system, the Road to Chatahoochee section is one  
of them. 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:
Hiking is a popular thing to do around Mud Creek; Raven Cliff Falls Trail is a magnificent local trail. Nacoochee Valley is a great site to explore, and the Appalachian National Scenic Trail offers hiking at its best. This is such a great river. Places like Moccasin Creek State Park are good to have a look at; you'll probably meet some people from Helen here. Unicoi State Park is a fine spot to stretch your legs a bit.
