Upper Chattooga Comments Needed

As some of you may know AW has been fighting for access to the Wild and Scenic Upper Chattooga for nearly two decades. A total paddling ban had been in place since 1976 but, after a long hard fight, two winters ago paddlers logged the first legal descents in almost 40 years.

It was a major victory for the paddling community and is an important case because it's one of those precedent setting court decisions where we can now show that paddling is a low impact and compatible way of enjoying Wild and Scenic rivers across the country.

The Forest Service is currently seeking comments on their Environmental Assessment and proposal to upgrade and designate the trails and access areas that paddlers and others use to access the Wild and Scenic Upper Chattooga River. We encourage you to become familiar with the plan and submit a comment before midnight Nov 7. Please check out this AW page for more information.
