Details:

On Sept. 21, dozens of paddlers from across North Georgia and beyond will launch on the Etowah River in Dawson County to celebrate the river and raise funds to create a 163-mile-long boating trail stretching from near Dahlonega to Rome.

The Etowah River Water Trail Rodeo will feature a 9-mile paddle on the Etowah through the Dawson Forest Wildlife Management Area followed by a dinner provided by Big D’s Barbecue in Dawsonville and Pepsi, with live music from Little Mountain Folk and a kayak giveaway from The Outside World.

Cost of the event is $50 per person (or $90 per couple) and includes complimentary canoe or kayak rentals courtesy of Appalachian Outfitters and Coosa River Basin Initiative (CRBI), dinner, shuttle service and a chance to win a new kayak. Proceeds from the benefit will be used to assist local communities in promoting and building the Etowah River Water Trail.
