This popular northeast Alabama float was the brainchild of Extension Agent Roger Vines who did so much to popularize paddling in Coosa County before his retirement a few months ago. The momentum behind his efforts still rolls on like the Hatchet, though, and an organization has sprung up to carry the good times forward. Help them with the participation they deserve for a great time on this fine piece of water.
The Hatchet Creek Festival is an organized 2-day float open to the public on a limited basis on Coosa County’s Hatchet Creek in partnership with the Alabama Scenic River Trail. The float begins at US-280 Hwy Hatchet Creek Bridge and ends at a take-out point approximately ¼ mile west of US-231 Hwy Bridge with camping at the Half-way Campsite.
Participants provide their own canoes/kayaks, camping gear/tents, and personal flotation equipment (required on the water). The Festival provides transportation from the take-out point to the start point, transport of the camping equipment to and from the camp site, safety paddlers, meals Saturday evening and Sunday breakfast, music entertainment on Saturday night, a Festival T-shirt for each participant and other amenities such as porta-potties, hand-washing stations, games, fishing etc.
The festival is a family oriented event – no alcohol or pets permitted. In the past two years the Festival has drawn 80+ participants with 60+ canoes/kayaks each year. The Festival is scheduled for May 30-31 and will hopefully allow a view of the blooming of the Cahaba Lilies that abound on the creek.
The event is partially sponsored by a grant from Central Alabama Electric Cooperative. There is a registration fee of $40 per person and is limited to the first 100 paddlers.
