Paddle Georgia Fall Float on the Flint River
October 9 – 12, 2015
Paddlesports enthusiasts are invited to join Georgia River Network on Columbus Day weekend for a voyage down the Flint River.
The event spans 70 miles from Albany to Bainbridge, including beautiful blue hole springs, lively rapids, rich history, abundant wildlife and more.
Participants will tent camp at Chehaw Park and on the river two nights at Rocky Bend Flint River Retreat.
Paddle Georgia Fall Float on the Flint is a Project of Georgia River Network in Partnership with Flint Riverkeeper.
Fed by massive underground aquifers, the Flint River, runs clear and cool as it winds from Chehaw Dam at Albany and on to Bainbridge. The Flint flows between limestone bluffs, over shoals, and between picturesque islands. Along the way, crystal clear spring pools bubble up to feed the river.
Off river, paddlers will have the opportunity to learn more about the river and the region through tours of area attractions and nightly activities at campsites that include entertainment, games, and programs highlighting the river’s cultural and natural heritage.
