River Description

Flat Creek is a mixed creature. The creek starts as a muddy pool above GA-52. The next several yards are easy class II drops with a class VI consequence. The creek then drops over and through Glade Shoals, a nearly unrunnable Class VI rapid. The creek then runs down through some easy class II and III rapids on the way down to Lake Lanier and the hooch.
DO NOT ACCIDENTALLY RUN GLADE SHOALS. YOU WILL DIE UNLESS YOU ARE LUCKY.

Glade Shoals

Glade Shoals is more of a massive waterfall and less of a "shoal" or rapid. While it might be possible to run this one without cashing in your chips it is unlikely.
