Black falls is on the Etowah River. See link Below
BARGE QUEEN - River Section from Mille's Berry to Jay Bridge. within the first mile - there are no less then 5 deadfall that span bank to bank. with normal river levels these you will have to carry over or around. these are not going away. This section is quite with almost no housing alone the banks. Drops and pools. Found were two drops of no less then 2 foot and one nice slide that was about 4 foot. with low water this slide was not runnable, you had to drag the boat. This section will be great with class 2's with more water. This is about 5 miles. WATCH - several local dogs like to follow boaters - they are friendly and will swim with you, they might not leave you and can be returned to their owners that live on HighTower church - FS road area - Old Place.
This is not on the section between Mille's Berry and Jay Bridge. There is a path on river left at mille's berry that can be followed - bring a hand saw and loppers as the trail is blocked at some points. This might not be accessable as it could be withint the boundries of the Ranger camp
Might this be the waterfall found just up the creek above "Deep Hole" aka Elbow? Anyone else?
Anyone have any info on this? Waterfalls on Etowah..hard to believe.
