River Description

To get to the put-in, cross Deer Creek on US1 northeast of Belair MD. Going North, Immediately after the bridge, look for a river access on left called Benjamin Bridge River Access.  

Shortly after crossing under the US 1 bridge, a series of rocky Class II rapids occur which require eddying and choosing slots and routes ending in a tongue under the Forge Hill Rd. Bridge.  If you look carefully, about half a mile below the Forge Hill Rd bridge, you may notice the remains of on old iron furnace on river left which is a good place to have lunch.  The rest of the run returns to Class I moving water and large eddys down to MD 136 - Priestford Rd.
