Went kayaking down the river. It was lovely with beautiful foliage on either side. A few rapids but nothing too serious (you can avoid most if you’re uncomfortable).

Great 7 mile trip down the Coosa! Moccasin Gap is a class 3 rapid and can be overwhelming for beginners. All in all its a great place to spend the day.

Favorite place to kayak in my home town. There's even a rope swing by a cute waterfall :)

Wonderful days with my granddaughters. Be careful navigating Moccasin Gap. We turned over both trips.

Floated coosa river yesterday 9/7/14 It was a mellow day out on the river. The flow was 4000 cfps. So the rapids where easy. I would like to float it at peak flow 8000 cfps. Maybe next time.

We as a family and as a scout group have done this section many times. The time without paddling maybe 4 hrs but the section can be completed in less than 1 1/2 hr. Enjoy the ride along the way, if yaking stop and play, if canoeing scout the stops, especially Moccasin gap, a level three rapid.

This was a great trip with a group of friends . Plenty of places to pull out and relax after going through the white water. Our group was a good mix of experienced and first time kayakers and we all had a great time.
