Blue Ridge Water Trails – June 2018
Paddling kayaks or going tubing, renting a pontoon boat, the thrill of  whitewater rafting or going on a waterfall hike are all refreshing ways to get out on the water in Blue Ridge. If you don’t have equipment don’t worry… we have dozens of professional guides and outfitters ready to fulfill your equipment and guidance needs, all available with easy online information and booking.

Georgia’s Blue Ridge delivers spectacularly, Mother Nature is everywhere… that’s what makes Blue Ridge unique as a vacation destination, especially the many different types of mountain waters. The beautiful Toccoa River, Lake Blue Ridge, thrilling whitewater on the Ocoee River, hiking trails to waterfalls, trout streams in the Trout Capital of Georgia… water trails are everywhere here.

The Toccoa River begins as a clear mountain trout stream, and makes a great kayaking and canoe trail, or a gentle tubing river. Flowing  northwards to form Lake Blue Ridge, all kinds of boating, paddling and swimming activities await. From the dam at Lake Blue Ridge flowing again northward, the Toccoa River is a wider, dam controlled water trail all the way to McCaysville, Georgia, with Horseshoe Bend Park along the way. It’s great for tubing, kayaking and fishing adventures. Once the Toccoa River crosses the Tennessee state line it becomes the Ocoee River, and at the Ocoee Whitewater Center, hosts dozens of thrilling whitewater rafting and paddling adventures… and outfitters for your every need.
