Trip Overview

Lancaster Mennonite to Lampeter Road. Dump boat near put in and park in upper lot near Lincoln highway. 3.7 miles in 1 hour 44 minutes. Some shallow spots. Water was running at normal levels. Put in and take out not improved and there is a bit of a slope to get from creek to Lampeter Road. No parking at Lampeter, but there is a generous shoulder for loading up. Enjoyable paddle on a infrequently paddled creek.

Watch for the spill over at Strasburg Pike!

Water running at regular levels though would be better after a rain. Shallow in spots

Portage Notes

Portage around spill over at Strasburg Pike and you need to carry boat across road. Take out on left near parking lot to a store. Put in down gully across road.
