ALAPAHA RIVER NEAR JENNINGS FLA
63.50 - 75.00 ft
Unusually high. Boatable? We need your input about when rapids 'washes out' (recommended 'max'). Reference gauge is well downstream of rapids, on larger river, thus provides only general indication of likely flows for this reach.
Runnable nearly all year, this section is swift with few obstuctions. The rapid occurs about .5
miles below the abandoned bridge halfway into the run. At low water there are two distinct sets
of Class II drops. As the water level rises, the two drops merge into one ledge/wavetrain.
Downstream, just above the confluence with the Alapaha, look for Turket Creek entering on the
right. At low levels this is a 12' waterfall into a beautiful grotto. At high levels (heavy
local rains) this drop turns into a pretty radical Class III-IV creeky double drop.
