Last Saturday we got to run Mammy's Creek. It flows into Piney Creek, then Lower White's just above Surf City. (The takeout is the same as Lower White's, on Rte. 27.) This would be a great club trip if we could work out a better shuttle plan. Unfortunately Jeff's truck got broken into at the putin. The area was beautiful, with all types of flowering trees and shrubs along the narrow creek.


It seemed like a small step up from White's, which would seem to make it a perfect follow-up trip to the White's club trip next fall. We didn't have to get out and scout anything. However, there were a few trees to negotiate around or through--just ask Dave Dehart.


Anyway, I just wanted to let you in on a little jewel of a Class-III creek that seems to have been overlooked by many of the area boaters. Not too steep, not too scary. Try it, I think you will like it.
