Tallapoosa River – Kayaking & Canoeing – Germany’s Ferry
A peaceful, family friendly adventure, the trail is a combination of flat water and shoals rarely above class I (easy) in the International Scale of River Difficulty. But the level, flow, and volume of the Tallapoosa River are seasonal and dictated by Alabama Power and its hydroelectric Harris Dam located upstream near Wedowee, Alabama. Paddlers are strongly encouraged to monitor the online water level gauges kept by the U.S. Geological Service at the Wadley Bridge and Horseshoe Bend Bridge.
(8.25 miles, 5-hour float) begins with public access at Bibby’s Ferry, just across the Tallapoosa County line in Chambers County, and ends with public access at Germany’s Ferry Bridge. This section features unique spots such at the Baptistry and the Fish Trap, brisk shoals, great fishing, a campsite, and stretches of flat water paddling.
