Directions Description

Start in Elizabetown. Find the Town Park next to the Ford Dealership. Look for the tennis and basketball courts.  This is the Takeout. The Branch ends just in the back of the park. When you hit the Boquet just walk back to your car.

To get to the Putin turn left onto 9 and then right on 9N. Scout at the 9N bridge. Keep an eye on the river. Scout any drops and note any wood. Pull over and get in when things stop looking interesting.
