Has anyone had any experience on this creek before? I'm familiar with the area (I lived on the
other side of Back Allegheny Mountain from Cass for 3 years) and the roads, but not familiar with
the put in and take-out points. Looking to go in July of '08 so any help would be appreciated. Put
in would be where Deer Creek crosses Rt 66 < 1/2 mile from Rt 92 / 66 intersection. Park on the
south side of the road. Upstream of Rt 66 there is a landowner reputed to be hostile to
boaters/trespassers, so I'm told. Also, be wary of strainers from blow down and beaver dams in the
first mile. Take-out can be in the Rail Trail parking lot on the West side of Cass. Just paddle
across the Greenbrier and downstream to where a tiny creek flows in and walk up it to the parking
lot. Of course, you can always extend the trip by paddling down to Stilington or Clover Lick. I may
paddle it this week (5/5/09) if the water holds.
