hatchet creek shoal lilies

This was taken at the last section of shoals on Hatchet Creek, right before the water deepens and makes its way on to Lake Mitchell. You can launch a canoe at Double Bridges and reach this spot in 15 or 20 minutes. Most of the lilies are just downstream from this photo. Alternatively you can put in at Kings Bridge and travel downstream to reach this spot in six to eight hours, depending on the water level. You will also find other stands of Cahaba lilies on the trip.
