Coosawattee River


The Coosawattee River originates in Gilmer County at the confluence of the Ellijay River and Cartecay River. It flows westward for some 50 miles, converging with the Conasauga River to form the Oostanaula River. The Oostanuala River then joins the Etowah River in Floyd County to form the Coosa River, which flows west into Alabama. There it merges with the Tallapoosa River to form the Alabama River, which flows southward into the Gulf of Mexico.
