River Description

Northern Georgia Canoeing, Sehlinger, B. and Otey, D.; also the Whitewater Sourcebook

The path to the put-in is next to the bridge across the road from the parking area on US-28.
If taking out at Earls Ford, note that there are two trails. The first trail, starting at the wooden steps, is a horse trail and does not go to the parking area. The second trail starts just a few feet downstream of the stairs at the same rocky beach area. You can use the stairs, then cut over at the top of the stairs to the right to reach the 0.2 mile trail to the parking.
