River Description

Directions, courtesy of the Lord of Baywatch:
Take I-90 East (from Cleveland and Akron) to State Rte. 11; go North.
Exit 11 at Seven Hills Road; turn right.
At stop sign, turn left and cross RR tracks. At Plymouth Ridge Rd. turn right;
in about 2 or three miles reach Greenhill Road, also called Township Rte. 20.
Turn right and immediately go down the hill to the river.
If you cross the river on Plymouth Ridge you have gone too far.

Shuttle: go back up Greenhill Rd. to Plymouth Ridge, cross it, and continue.
After a bend in the road to the right will be a road on your left. Turn here and follow this road to the takeout at the ford.

Alternate takeout, at Indian Trail Park (State Rd.), adds 3 Class I-II miles to the trip.
Alternate putin, on Benetka Rd., adds 3 miles (1.5 flat, 1.5 Class I) to the trip.

Runnable flows are lower than 500CFS - I would say above 1.6ft on the Dewey Rd bridge gauge makes
the run doable - which corresponds to approximately 1.8ft-2ft on the Conneaut Creek Gauge
(approximately 300CFS)
