About this event:

Created by Lesley Symington

Want to get your whole family out for a paddle trip?  Ever wished they could see the beauty of the Chattooga river?  Section 2 is the place for a wonderful family day enjoying the river’s beauty, while keeping the pressure low.  Mike Tipton and family will be running Chattooga 2 on 4/26/15  (Mike, wife, and daughter, 9).  We’ll be meeting at the Hwy 28 put in at 10, then running shuttle to the take out.  There’s no cell signal up there, so don’t be late!  There are only 2 rapids, both of which can be walked if desired.  Mike’s daughter ran her Fun1 down this run on a tow line at age 6, and paddled on her own at age 8.  There are plenty of shoals along the way to keep things interesting.  We’ll be stopping at the second rapid to relax on the rocks and eat lunch.  Min river level 1.9 bridge/2.1 web.  High temp >80.  It’s a relaxing run, but standard safety rules still apply (PFD, float bags for kayaks, ability to swim, etc). Email with any questions you have.  tiptonmichael@hotmail.com.  RSVP is required due to limited cell signal in the area.
