We started out at Whitesburg, GA @ Hwy 16 and paddled down to Chattahoochee Bend State Park where we camped for the night.

This was a very nice section with class 1 rapids mixed in with flat water. Very easy. Day 2 we went from Chattahoochee Bend to Franklin. Again, mixture of class 1 & lower Class 2 shoals. Very easy to run.

Here is a video of the second day shoal sections:
