    Paddle the Relay Down the Hooch!

    Chattahoochee Parks Conservency (CPC) and Nantahala Outdoor Center (NOC) are proud partners in Chattahoochee Riverkeeper’s Relay Down the Hooch. We will host a paddle trip from Morgan Falls to Paces Mill on June 29th - the 17th leg of this incredible 435 miles journey.

    This 9-mile paddle is the final section of the CRNRA, which is rich in both natural and human history. See the site where Federal forces outflanked the Confederate Army, Native American sites, and the magnificent Palisades. Pass through Cochran Shoals, Devil’s Race Course Shoals, and Thornton Shoals, all easy and fun Class 1.5 rapids. Estimated trip time (which includes shuttling): 8am to 1pm. Bring your lunch for a mid-stop break. Limit: 30
    Physical Requirements: All participants must be able to swim efficiently and must be able to get in and out of a kayak easily (i.e. those with knee or back injuries may have difficulty). Paddling uses your core muscles, arms and shoulders. Anyone with injuries in these areas may have difficulty.

    Geology with Bill Witherspoon
    Sept 15, 2-4:30 PM

    SAVE THE DATE: Registration opens Aug 25!

    Bill Witherspoon, co-author of Roadside Geology of Georgia (www.georgiarocks.us www.facebook.com/RoadsideGeologyGA), leads us to the geologic wonders of East Palisades/Indian Trail. Walk to one of the metro area’s largest natural rock faces exposing our most typical rock type, biotite gneiss. Along the trail are outcrops of the tough rock, quartzite, which is responsible for the steep walls of Chattahoochee Palisades gorge. At the top of the Palisades, overlooking Devil’s Racecourse Shoals, the work the Chattahoochee has done shaping the landscape is impressive. The two-mile, moderate walk has one steep up-hill climb. Ages 10 and up. No dogs, please. Limit: 20

    Guide: Dr. Bill Witherspoon and Dr. Pamela Gore co-authored the popular guide, Roadside Geology of Georgia, a full-color volume on Georgia's wonders, from the coast to the mountains: landscapes, rocks, minerals, fossils, and the human stories geology has shaped. Dr. Witherspoon taught geology to K-12 students and their teachers for 17 years at DeKalb County Schools’ Fernbank Science Center.
