Bull Sluice on the Chattooga Wild and Scenic River
Waterfall purists may scoff at Bull Sluice being included in a guide listing waterfalls, but this Class V Whitewater Rapid is a textbook definition of falling water. Tons of frothing, aerated water explode over this drop each minute, producing an audible roar far downstream.
Bull Sluice may be approached on either the South Carolina side or the Georgia side of the Chattooga River. We went to the South Carolina side and walked down a path to the observation deck. While there, we got to see several kayakers negotiate the sluice. There were also some whitewater rafts --but we didn't get to the overlook in time to get pictures of them. Above and below are some pictures we took while there (April 30).
We had a great time at Bull Sluice --and enjoyed watching the kayakers...
Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. Any big plans to celebrate this weekend? We will be home --so I will post a blog on Monday. Whatever you do, have a good weekend.
