A walk through nature

The Chattahoochee River area I visited is Morgan Falls Dam and the water release was amazing to watch and listen too.

The "Hooch" has many different opportunities for pleasure. When the river is high following heavy rain, it will flood across the road. When the river is at normal height the options expand. There is a park where small children (under supervision) can use playground equipment. There is a "clubhouse" there where you can make reservations to rent kayaks and canoes.... More

The Chattahoochee River is a long, generally slow-moving river which moves through Roswell and Atlanta, Georgia. In Roswell, there is a Visitor's Center to check out. However, the best way to see the river is to kayak, canoe or "tube" the river so you are in the middle of the peace and quiet while still in the city. Just perfect... More

We live on the Chattahoochee River. Our dock sits in a narrow waterway alongside an island in the river in Roswell. This river is our misty view with coffee in the morning, sunny afternoon wine, or hors d'oeurvres for happy hour with friends. We watch geese and herons fly overhead, mallards swimming by, kayakers paddling along. When the river is... More

The Chattahoochee is a major river that winds across Northern Atlanta. Most of us just drive across the bridges hurrying to wherever we're headed. But take the time to get to know this jewel. From the National Recreation Area to the river itself, the 'Hooch is a gift and you forget you're in the middle of a major city when... More

I've fly fished this river at just about every access point in the Atlanta and in Helen. The park headquarters at Island Ford was a favorite fishing and wading spot of mine for many years. I just walked the trails again this week at nearby Jones Bridge and enjoyed the clear water. Very relaxing.

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.
