South Slough National Estuarine Reserve from Winchester Creek.

Trip Overview

South Slough National Estuarine Reserve from Hinch Bridge on Winchester Creek near Charleston, Oregon. Low tide when we launched so had to navigate through a slough with some shallow spots. By the time we returned on the incoming tide, it was much higher and we paddled back in Winchester Creek a bit. Beautiful back bay and lovely solitude


The launch spot is on a tidal creek. There are times at certain low tides when it’s too shallow.
