Kayaking "from" the Etowah Castleberry Bridge to RT 136.. (RULE OF THUMB)...The cloudier and faster the water is moving the more dangerous it is. The slower and clearer the water the safer it is.
THE TUNNEL: CAUTION/DANGER!! Passing through the tunnel is always in question. This is dependent on the tunnel safety rules, your experience and the present water level and if any debris ( logs etc) has blocked part of the tunnel. Make sure you familiarize yourself with the tunnel safety rules below.
TUNNEL SAFETY RULES...What you must know!
(1) Stop before the tunnel and make sure you can see all the way through. You will be able to stand up at a safe water level. (2) One person/Kayak at a time all the way through. (3) Do not send the second person/ third...etc in until the previous person has gone through all the way and you can see the light at the other end. Helmet, head lamps are recommended highly. (4) It is difficult or sometimes imposable to paddle all the way through the tunnel because it becomes to narrow part way through. Turn your paddle parallel to your craft. (5) Do not touch the sides of the tunnel with your hands for this may turn you sideways resulting in you getting stuck sideways. Relax let the water guide your craft through. (6) If you are thrown from your craft lay back, chest up, and keep your feet out in front of you.(7) If you are able to see through the tunnel you will be able to stand up in the tunnel if you capsize. (8) If you choose not to go through the tunnel go to the right around it. USGS water info below!
NOTE: Be aware of the forecast for the day/afternoon that you are planing to go. Rain can cause the river level to rise quickly...keep this in mind. This is always a concern!

This page is dedicated mostly to the Etowah River at Castleberry Bridge. After several months of cleanup ( march of 2017) and installing trash barrels and bags this particular area is one of the most natural and beautiful spots on the Etowah river. Many people visit to swim, fish , and kayak. The river bank flora is a marvel of wild flowers and plants and there is a verity of wildlife. The best time to see the wild rhododendron flowers is late June ,July. Other flowers are view from April through October. Hope you're enjoying your day!
