Allyson Davis and I set out on 11.02.2019. Sunny, mid 60's and water level of 2.2 made for a nice leisurely paddle with only a few rapids. Easily seen river wide tree down below Campground put in, so we put in below it at OverFlow Bridge, and took trail to the right off the tiny parking area. Very short trail compared to normal Chattooga 1/4 mile trails.

This is the gauge on the US 76 Bridge and is located about 15 miles downstream from this section of the river.
It will be low and scrapy at levels below 2 feet.
There is also a gauge on river right at Overflow Creek Bridge. Look for levels on this gauge to be over 1 foot.
We have no additional detail on this route.
