River Description

Lawson Moore shared:

I would like to share some river information I have gathered on an Athens, Georgia park-and-play that is currently unlisted on your site. The South Fork of the Broad River, in Madison County, Georgia, just north of Athens, sports a respectable class-2+ (3) park-and-play spot.  The run is located within Watson Mill Bridge State Park. It contains one 15-foot slide, ledges, a technical class-2 rock garden, a couple decent waves, and many eddies left and right. I played this spot 12/30/07 and took a couple of photos I have attached for you guys. 

Lat/longitude of the putin and takeout are rough guesses, to get the intrepid surfer literally into the ballpark. Note that at least one map shows a dam just downstream of the covered bridge. Don't be an idjit and run this thingie without scouting.
