This Creek takes a lot of rain to run. The take out at Cove Road would need to see water spilling over the dam all the way across.

The Gauge for this river is painted on the river left of the dam.

Put in: From Atlanta take I-575 north toward Jasper. Turn Right on Highway 53 to Downtown Jasper. Go over the Main Street to the next Left, this will be Burnt Mountain Road. Go a few miles to a Right on Cove Road. The creek will be the first one you arrive at the bottom of the hill.
