Day trip from Glenfield put-in to Beaches Landing take-out.
Just over 11.5 miles took 3 hours in a steady moderate to slow current. Plenty of water for paddling, but river levels were moderately low.
Saw a few folks along the banks (there are a few houses and camps along the river, but mostly farmland and scrub forest) but no one on the river until we were within a half mile of takeout where we saw some fisherman.
An idyllic day, partly cloudy and in the high 70s - low 80s with an intermittent light breeze.
Safety NotesMany, many pilings in river left over from what may have been a series of railroad tressels. 2 small sets of riffles, the second more significant than the first. Unfortunately I didn't pay attention to mileage. Neither was any issue at the water level (lowish) that we paddled.
Gear NotesI paddled my CLC Lightcraft Chesapeake 18 and my wife paddled her Eddyline Merlin XT (15ft) with great enjoyment!
