In 1974 the Georgia Tech Outdoor Club took a raft and kayak trip down the Upper Chattooga River from Burrells Ford to Highway 28. This is the same year the section was designated Wild and Scenic in part because of its outstanding paddling values, and 2 years before paddling was banned by the Forest Service. Follow the club as they paddle, portage, and take in the great scenery. Thanks to Miller Templeton for filming this piece of history!
