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.

The Chattahoochee River became the division of territory between these two tribes many, many years ago. It is a gorgeous area to jog, walk, picnic, take the children to play, ride a bike, go for the water sports, or, just sit and drink in the beauty at your place of choice along the banks of this beautiful river.

The river in Roswell is filled with beautiful tree covered walking trails. There is a section of food trucks and volley ball which is always in use. The park has two nice playgrounds along with trails and a fishing deck over the water. The first Sat. of the month is a free concert and the musicians are outstanding. There are... More

Nice river with extremes of white water depending on the flow rate as determined by the Corp of Engineers. Some good access points but not really a good river for larger boats. Kyack or canoe or tube can be fun. When Jimmy Carter was President he made all land that wasn't developed at that time surrounding the river, a National... More

The Chattahoochee River is one of those pleasant surprises that you find frequently in the State of Georgia. Running from Helen in the north Georgia Blue Ridge Mountains, where it starts as a stream, and culminating at the southwestern border of the state, where it becomes the Apalachicola River in Florida and about 90 miles south, eventually Apalachicola Bay and...

The National Park Service has created a great string of parks from Lake Lanier north of Atlanta to the suburbs. You can hike, bike, raft, fish, or boat depending on area. Parking is reasonably priced and experience varies from location to location. I have been visiting this area for over 30 years and it is a treat. See NPS website... More

"Way down yonder on the Chattahoochee..." It is a quick drive from Atlanta and a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. Bring you sun screen and an innertube and enjoy to relaxing trip. I've done it a half-dozen times and still love it.
