Paddled the South Fork of the New last weekend from where Windy Hill Rd first intersects the river
about 2 miles above the bridge crossing to the Hwy 163 bridge. River distance about 14 miles. The
shuttle was on Idlewild Rd following Bob Benner's book. We paddled open canoes at 359 cfs. The trip
took 6 and a half hours. About two thirds of the trip is pastoral thru developed farmland with
several miles of undeveloped woodland in the middle. There was no whitewater, 1-2 mph current and
occasional riffles. We portaged 3 low water bridges up steep banks. Water quality was good. Lots of
birds and waterfowl. Pleasant trip but would not do again.
