This is a strong river coming down at speeds varied by damns at Lake Lanier. Rarely is it clear as glass and appears muddy with a lot of rain. River Keepers work hard to report report pollutants and to clear it of debris.

Fun to Kayak and love seeing it at Roswell Park. If it's muddy, stay out of the water due to increased levels of E Coli. Walk through Roswell park and read plaques for a historical view of the river!

The river is part of Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area, a unit of the National Park Service. A great place to hike or boat. Be sure to use a leash with your dog, leave glass bottles and Styrofoam at home, and always wear a life jacket when in the river.

about half size wider than Hudson River in NY. It was muddy from previous rain. Not sure why so many people willing to paddle in this muddy river.

Awesome place for a family picnic, have some fun on the river, feed the geese, play frisbee. Put the laptop down and get out, exercise, have fun with the kids and enjoy nature.

Kayaking, miles of hiking and biking trails, parks, concerts along a river that's within easy walking or biking distance of much of Roswell and Sandy Springs. Get an annual car pass for just $35 to skip the daily parking fee at the trailheads.

The Hootch through roswell is nasty after a major rainstorm. Sewers get backed up and raw seepage flows into the river and floods the banks. Garbage, plastic bottles, tampons, condoms, you name it, all flows down the river..I'll never go tubing down the stretch ever again. Nasty.

We were looking for a nice place to hike in February. Research suggested the Chattahoochee River had some great trails. The one we chose did not disappoint. We drove to the Vickery Creek trail head which is the site of an historic mill and massive Big Creek dam. A covered bridge takes you to the trail head. The spillway dam... More

My family has canoed and kayaked the river from the Gwinnett/Fulton county line to just past Ga .400 for years. The prettiest time of the year seems to be when the hydrangeas are blooming as there are many planted along the banks. We usually see large turtles, blue herons, duck, and Canadian geese. There are many mansions on the river... More

As the Chattahoochee River runs through Roswell it provides a broad scope of activities. You can raft down the river, rent a canoe and paddle around, walk or bike along the miles of walking and bike paths, grab your fishing pole and try out some fly fishing, take the kids to the numerous playgrounds. Bike or walk up to the... More
