River Description


Rumored to be one of the best whitewater runs in Central Alabama.  Similar to many quality runs in Alabama, the access deters many from enjoying this section.  The first mile is relatively flat, then the geology changes from sandstone to granite - this is where things begin to pick up.  There are a few Class II/III slides before four back to back Class II+/III+ rapids.
