Joan Steed, is coordinating a GCA canoe & kayak trip on Hatchet Creek on Sunday March 20.  It is a class 1-2 river near Sylacauga, Alabama, which is south of Birmingham, probably 2.5 hours from Atlanta,.  The run is about 13 miles and will take about 6-7 hours unless we can find another put in or take out that will shorten the trip. 

We are meeting at the put in at 9:30.  To check out this run and others in Alabama, go to, click guide on the top left, then scroll through the names of the rivers at the bottom till you get to Hatchet Creek.  There is also another site mentioned in that site that will show lots more pictures of Hatchet Creek.  For more details call me and I’ll get you more info.

This is not a river that the GCA paddles regularly, so if you like to see new water, now is the time!
