VisitÃÂ 2. Lower Cartecay Road to Stegall Mill Road Road (Middle Cartecay)ÃÂ for more details.
We ran the Cartecay on Sunday 5/16/2017. It was at 1.95 and it was fun. S turn as always threw me in the water but I cleared Blackberry Falls by going to the far right of the Rooster Tail. Only a handful of people were on the river so that made for a relaxing time in between the rapids. The trees were full with summer flowers and the water was not too cold.
I think they have the map wrong too. They have the Put In at lat 34.6522, long -84.3981 and the Take Out at lat 34.6917, long -84.4789 which is way off. Based on the description it should be more like
34.649700,-84.395100 to lat 34.6383, long -84.4087 as seen here: http://goo.gl/tr84w
Looks like most of these Pics are from the next section. The upper section is far easier than these Pics make it look to be.
