Spend a relaxing half day on the lower Etowah river experiencing Georgia's rich history from a totally unique perspective.
The Etowah River was a pivotal location within General Sherman's fiery path from battlefield to battlefield. Battles like Resaca, Dalton and Cassville saw Sherman's army cross the waters several times between Cartersville and Rome. Other crossings were made prior to the battles of Dallas and Picket's Mill.
You'll enjoy a guided, interpretive kayaking tour that begins at the historic covered bridge in beautiful Euharlee. Launching from a historic Ford mentioned in period Civil War maps, you'll experience the natural beauty of the river itself as well as the same crossings, breastworks and fords that Union and Confederate armies contended with when crossing the Etowah River.
