CRK’s Outings Program is not just a diverse way to enjoy the great outdoors – it’s a chance to connect our community to the Chattahoochee River and provide different perspectives on its value in the everyday lives of Georgians. And at times, it’s a chance to give something back to the river by pulling something out – trash. One part paddle trail, one part hiking trail, one part camping venue, and one part threatened water source … the Chattahoochee means many things to many people.

We are excited to offer the following 2018 outings!  Check back regularly as we continuously update the list:
