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

Lazy relaxed rafting for the whole family. Nothing too hurried or difficult for the children or older folks. Just a nice ride down the river... perfect for taking a packed lunch. Suntan lotion is a must.

A great escape from Atlanta's Skyscrapers and traffic, there are plenty of hiking trails, bike paths, and you can always tube down the river on hot days!

Rented canoes from a group called Shoot the Hooch.com. very professional. Made sure everyone would be safe and understood directions. Super friendly and very helpful staff. We went as a group of 9 including 2 children. Canoe trip took about 4 hours. Ate lunch on the bank. Scenery is awesome. Best way to see the chattahoochee.

Run or walk along the river and watch the wildlife. Find a flat rock when the river is done (usually on weekends). Float on a raft in the summer but be careful the water is always cold because it comes from the bottom release of Buford dam.
