Last Call – CRBI Paddle Trip on the Etowah

CRBI Paddle Trip on the Etowah River
Sunday, April 29 – 2 p.m.

Discover Rome in a whole new way on this town and country tour of the Etowah River. This six-mile paddle takes you from the outskirts of Rome through the heart of the city and on to the Etowah’s confluence with the Oostanaula River. Along the way, you’ll see beautiful riverside springs, Native American fish weirs, historic Myrtle Hill and the remains of the paddlewheeler, Dixie—all from an otter’s eye view on the river. This is a flatwater paddle with a couple of small shoals and is suitable for novice paddlers.

Canoe rentals are $25 and kayaks are available for $20 (rental includes paddles and life jackets).  CRBI will provide maps of the river’s course that include information about points of interest along the way.  There will be a short safety briefing before heading down the river.  Shuttle service is provided back to Grizzard Park.

Reserve your canoe via the HarbinSTRONG calendar on the Intranet by 5 p.m. on Monday, April 23.  Send check payable to CRBI to Sarah King, Administration. Email sking@harbinclinic with questions.
