Rancocas Creek in New Jersey

Trip Overview

Rob & I did the last 5 miles or so of the Rancocas, out to the Delaware and back. We put in on Mill Creek and followed it out to the Rancocas. Go with the tides. River is wide here. Some houses, marinas, etc. but also good natural beauty. Bar may be open on left (if yer lucky). Under bridges at Rt 130 and Riverline RR. Saw old clocktower in Riverside.

Had lunch at Amico Island. Saw egret nesting island across from Amico. Can also see distant Philly skyline from here. Hit headwind coming down the Creek on our way back. Upon return, also went 2 miles up Mill Creek at high tide.
