The country’s largest week-long canoe/kayak camping adventure will return to the Chattahoochee River this summer to celebrate its tenth year of introducing citizens to Georgia’s rivers and raising money to protect those waterways. Georgia River Network’s Paddle Georgia 2014, with more than 400 paddlers, will launch on the Chattahoochee below Buford Dam near Cumming June 21 and travel for seven days and 115 miles, finishing the journey June 27 in Franklin.

The first Paddle Georgia in 2005 followed the same route, and the 2014 trip marks the tenth year of the annual pilgrimages on Georgia’s rivers.

During Paddle Georgia’s first nine years, GRN has introduced more than 2,800 paddlers to more than 900 miles of water trails on 11 different rivers.
