The Chattahoochee River begins its journey south on the southern edge of the Blue Ridge mountains, just below Brasstown Bald, Georgia’s highest point at 4,784 feet. The word Chattahoochee is derived from the Creek Indian words meaning painted rock. From its birthplace at Coon Den Ridge in Union County, Georgia, the river flows south for 430 miles to its confluence with the Flint River. The Chattahoochee basin drains an area of 8,770 square miles and is the most heavily used water resource in Georgia.
