Alternative 4 has been approved by the Forest Service.
This was clearly the most restrictive option that still opens the door to paddling. It opens seven miles of the upper Chattooga to boating. All the use of the river is still not treated equally, and boating limitations are imposed.
Boating season will be from December 1 to March 1 with paddling groups limited to 2 min – 6 max.
