Powers Island is one of the most serene sections of the recreation area and less traffic than its popular neighbor, Interstate North, just across the Chattahoochee River. A narrow trail makes a 2.5-mile loop as it follows the riverbank, offers broad views of the Chattahoochee, and climbs through dense forest to explore a portion of a ridge. If you’re looking for a quiet escape, this is a prime destination. Powers Island has a scenic trail system and a watercraft launch.

Nantahala Outdoor Center is located at the Powers Island Unit of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. Learn more about NOC by visiting: https://noc.com/plan-your-trip/chattahoochee-river.
