1.5 hour Paddle Trip Smyrna Stewarts Creek from Smyrna Elementary Shool


A self-supported trip created by Nappybeard

Trip Overview

We made our own put in behind Smyrna Elementary School Soccer fields off Sam Davis Road. Existing Trail, lots of trash next to the "no dumping" sign, of course. (surly there is a better put in?) Paddled down stream past golf course, greenway, industrial area, to ramp at Smyrna softball fields. Couple of downed trees near Sam Ridley Parkway bridge. Low Bridge with underhung pipe at 8th ave bridge required to drop seat back and do Yak Limbo under pipe. Pollution caution sign at Swan Drive. Some nice small rapids. Will search Sam Davis Home for better access.

Safety Notes

Dont eat the fish or drink the water. Nasty smell on clothes after accidental capsize.

Gear Notes

10' sit on top and 12' Jackson sit on top.

Conditions

Blue sky.

Portage Notes

Was able to manuver around two tree pile ups. If water had been high, would not have been able to go under 8th Ave Bridge.
