Three hour run, thereabouts. Low water, although no problems w/ bottom-outs, etc. Upper Cypress Creek (you'll pass Forks of Cypress getting there) has various problem areas resulting from recent winter flooding. Many of the familiar bends in the river have changed a bit, requiring a bit of back-paddle on occasion due to heavy treefall / treedrag around islands and beaches. No obstacles other than trees on Upper Cypress. Good run, very few gnats or mosquito critters. Clear smooth water with occasional swifter currents (although not swift by any other rivers' definition, lol). Lots of small-rocky beaches, islands, and bends. You'll hear the traffic on Cox Creek a good while before the take-out point (Cox Creek Parkway bridge over Cypress Creek, although you can continue down to Wildwood Park for a longer, 7-8-ish hour trip).
