I've been looking around for places to paddle in the area and have heard of Hatchet Creek, running from the Talladega Nat'l. Forest to Lake Mitchell on the Coosa River. I'm mostly interested in the section between Hwy 280 and Hwy 231. Anyone actually done that run in kayak or canoe? Is it doable in one day and do you have any idea how much water is there now? I'd like to do the rest of it too, but need to do day trips not overnights. Is that possible without killing yourself paddling and is there enough water to do it this spring?
I've found the Hatchet Creek website, but there isn't enough info there for me.
