River Description

This section of the Chauga is a nice class 2/3 canoe float that happens to have a 100 yard long class 5 section about a half a mile into it. There are three back to back slides and waterfalls in a section called the narrows. Local hairboating types have run all of them. The better portage trail is down river right.

After that the river calms down and is a nice pleasant float down to Cassidy Bridge.
