Most of the river flows at a very lazy pace, but portions can contain up to Class 2 rapids.

The Chattahoochee River is a great place for a picnic, a leisurely walk, or boating on a sunny afternoon. The 48 miles of of the river that the park contains can take up the whole day or just a few hours for a quick getaway from the fast pace of the city life.
