Paddling

The GHA is rich with small and medium sized streams with great access for avid paddlers. We have small, intimate streams with tight bends and short sections of riffles and larger lazy rivers with broad vistas and great fishing. Everything is Class I or II so is generally accessible for most paddlers with moderate skills.
