The Chattahoochee River is a hidden gem running through the Atlanta metro area. I try to take my kayak out once a month on the Hooch to enjoy the scenery and try to get away from things. I like to put in at one of the parking lots on Azalea Drive in Roswell but during the weekends the parking spots are few and far between. If that’s the case I’ll go down to the parking spot past the Nature Center on Wileo Road. If the river isn’t too low you can usually paddle your way out. The river up here is pretty clean considering all of the development around it. Being on the river gives you a totally different perspective of the area. Paddling under GA 400 is pretty cool, and it shocked me how shallow the water is there the first time I went through. If you get a chance to get on the river give it a try, I’m sure you’ll like it. Before you go it’s always a good idea to call the Buford Dam release # to see if they are making electricity at 770-945-1466.
