The river drops about 20' over the entire section. Half of that drop occurs at The Shoals...the
rapid just above the take-out. It might be proper to describe these falls as a park and play rapid.
Two sets of islands divide the falls into three channels; the far right channel is gradual and a
good choice. Overall, this section is a beautiful smoothwater run relatively clear of deadfall.
Minimum 10'/300cfs at the USGS Ga 88 near Grange gauge (which is 30 river miles downstream). It
probably starts to get good for cruising or camping somewhere between 400 and 500 cfs. --tw
