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:

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.

Jason Robertson

Bob and Lisa, the owners of River Right Outfitters, have come through with another super win for the paddling community. They have secured, with American Whitewater's help, a new put-in complete with bathrooms, a riverside campground, and, best of all, FREE ACCESS!
