Trip Overview17 miles 4.5 hours with quick lunch break at Redings Mill 7:45 AM to 12:15 PM Nice quiet day on the creek. Only saw one other pair of floaters outside of the fishermen and swimmers at the public creek access points. We paddled our tandem kayak pretty steadily most of the trip, never keeping our paddles out of the water for more than a minute so we made the trip quicker than expected. Saw two bald eagles. One in a tree at Lime Kiln and the other flying over the creek somewhere between around mile 7 or 8.
Safety NotesThere were a lot of low branches over strong currents in the 2 miles from Gateway to Redings Mill. Be alert
