River Description


20 Miles from Hwy 127 to Barnett Bridge, the next bridge. 4.5 more miles to Jett bridge. Many of the local paddling clubs do overnighters on this section. The rock houses are mysterious, wonderous and deserve to be explored. Some of them are incredably large, some overhang the creek and others are so deep in the woods that you only get a hint of there existance as you paddle by. We paddled from the put in on Hwy 127 to Jette Bridge once,25 miles, in our K1 creek boats. The first 10 miles were OK, the next 10 were painful and the last 5 miles were torture, knowing that we could have parked at Barnet Bridge, instead of Jette. This run is made for big open boats or touring kayaks.
