TOCCOA — Georgia River Network recently designated the Tugaloo River Water Trail as an established part of the organization’s Georgia Water Trails Network during a ribbon-cutting ceremony at Broken Bridges, the water trail’s end point within Stephens County Park. The ceremony was attended by local dignitaries, leaders and stakeholders and capped off close to three years of work by the Tugaloo River Water Trail Stakeholder Committee to meet Georgia River Network’s criteria for established water trails within the statewide network.

The riverside ribbon cutting followed a celebratory paddle where more than 55 participants explored the length of the water trail, a pristine and historic 10-mile stretch of the Tugaloo River from Yonah Dam to Broken Bridges. After the ribbon-cutting, attendees gathered for a gourmet low-country boil dinner catered by the Currahee Club and live music by the Solstice Sisters at Tugaloo Bend Heritage Park.
