Terrapin Creek Map and Pictures

Terrapin Creek Map
Terrapin Creek had become a popular Coosa River tributary for canoeists, kayakers, and tubers. Terrapin Creek is twisty and quick with plenty of shoals, rocks and whitewater spots to make for a few fun hours and long enough for a multi-day trip. In 2011, the Alabama Scenic River Trail designed and created access improvements over fifty of the most-used miles of the Terrapin through a grant by the Recreational Trails Program of the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Development (ADECA).

Chief Ladiga Campground
Chief Ladiga Trail Campground
is a great place (arguably the only place) to use as a base of operations to explore and paddle the Terrapin environs. The Campground (3180 County Road 94 Piedmont, Mile 35 on the Chief Ladiga Cycling Trail 256 282 2370) is a beautiful 20-acre site where the Alabama Scenic River Trail, the Chief Ladiga Cycling Trail and the Pinhoti Hiking Trail amazingly converge and are all accessible from. From this campground beneath Oakey Mountain, the advernturer can cycle to Atlanta, hike to Maine on the AT, or paddle to the Gulf of Mexico. 
Steps to Terrapin Creek
Steel steps with kayak slide was one of a number of ASRT-designed, ADECA Recreational Trails Program-funded improvements made on Terrapin Creek during 2010-2011. 
Information Sign
A future paddler stands below one of eight Terrapin Creek Guide Signs created by the Alabama Scenic River Trail with funding from ADECA's Recreational Trails Program. The signs are part of a program whose aim is to eventually develop such signs for every segment of the Alabama Scenic River Trail.
 Access to Terrapin Creek
Some areas of Terrapin Creek are very accessable.
