Yesterday my son and I had a nice all morning trip on the Soque (suh-kwee) River in NE GA. Nice quiet ride with mostly slow water with a few Class 1 shoals for a little excitement for a rec boater. We were the only ones on the river and the weather was great. Very little development, two or three houses. Nice granite outcrops and few sandy places to stop. The Soque merges with the Upper Chattahoochee and we took out at Wildewood Outfitters on Duncan Bridge Rd. You can make the whole trip in 1-2 hrs or dawdle eat lunch etc. Mind the posted signs (not too many there) Good day trip, no place to camp as far as I know.
No camping as far as I know and no facilities. Downstream parking at Wildewood Outfitters. Shuttles can be arranged thru WWOF April-Sept.
From Atlanta, I-85 to I-985, I-985 turns into Ga. 365, take Historic 441N exit and go to third light and turn left on Ga. 105 near Wal-Mart. About 4 mi look for new sign indicating a road on the left and turn left onto Old 105 Follow until it ends at a barricade and turn right into a gravel road that leads to the put it under the new 105 bridge.
WARNING: Put in is very steep. It is very slick and muddy in rainy weather.
