The put-in of the trail is location at the Deep Hole Recreation Area, a U.S. Forest Service campground off of highway GA 60, south of Blue Ridge and north of Suches, GA. The canoe trail begins on the north bank of the river, flowing west and north toward Blue Ridge to its end at the Sandy Bottom Canoe Take-Out.
Launch and parking costs $5 per vehicle. A portion of the recreation fees that are paid for use of these areas are invested back into the area and go toward maintenance, operation, and improvement of the facilities. It is important to remember to respect private lands and property. Please practice “Leave No Trace” ethics and leave areas in better condition than you found them. This helps to preserve the beautiful resources that you enjoy for the next person and ensure that these cool mountain streams and natural resources will be around for generations.
