Harold Banks Canoe Trail
Located at the southern end of the Appalachian Mountains, the Tallapoosa River winds 258 miles from western Georgia into eastern Alabama. The river gets its name from the people who lived along the lower stretch of it in the eighteenth century. The Tallapoosa flows through stretches of lush countryside that help preserve its natural beauty and solitude. The Tallapoosa is so unique that the Alabama section has been designated a part of the Alabama Scenic River Trail. This wide-open space allows for easy social distancing; however, we want to remind our visitors to bring their masks or other facial coverings to put on when they are within 6-feet of persons from different households, as currently required by state guidelines.
