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.
Excellent paddling when the water is flowing. Pay attention and don’t go over the dam or several falls all can be safely portaged around. We paddled from Benetka past the takeout all the way to the lift bridge in the Harbor 19.5 miles took 5 hours. Would not try trip this when the water is low.
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)
On SE corner of Olin Covered Bridge (Dewey Rd.) 1.5' minimum, 3.0' is high.
Permits are not required for this reach.
We have no additional detail on this route.
