Palisades River Float in Sandy Springs

Great activity for the kids as summer winds down and back to school kicks in.

Bring your own canoe or kayak and join a ranger for a very leisurely float through the Palisades of the Chattahoochee River in Sandy Springs.

They will float a three mile section of the river from Powers Island to Paces Mill at US Highway 41. There are three mild class 2 rapids on this stretch of river suitable for beginners with some basic canoeing or kayaking experience. The Palisades has a narrow floodplain and steep ridges rising to over 1,000 feet. The area offers a great diversity of habitats and includes oak-hickory forest, steep north facing slopes, mesic ravine forest, and floodplain forest.

Created by the geologic action of the Brevard Fault, the river, and the effects of weather; this rugged and beautiful section of the river is habitat to an extraordinary array of fauna and flora. They will make several stops along the way including a Chinese bamboo grove, Sandy Point, and Devil`s Stair Step Beach (Diving Rock).

Reservations are required, so please call 678-538-1200 to make your reservation´╗┐.
