Town Creek Alabama Whitewater

American Whitewater states:

Town Creek is a nice introduction to creeking for aspiring Alabama Creekers. The put-in is just below High Falls (class 5), a 30- 35 foot near-vertical falls, which has been run on occasion.  This would be a much more popular run if the access to the put in and take out were better and less strenuous.

The action starts quickly and continues all the way to the lake. There are class 3 rapids galore, some of which may have a few interesting slots and moves, though most are fairly straightforward. The canyon is heavily forested with large cliff bands up above.

This is a video of us kayaking Town Creek on March 29th. It was my first time kayaking Town Creek and my 4th time in a sit inside kayak. Was my brothers second time in a sit inside kayak. Was quite a step up from the Locust Fork. Looking forward to going back after I sharpen my skills a bit. Water was about 400 cfs.
