River Description

Very short stream with surprising gradient for length. Takeout on dirt road that approaches Buckhorn Dam. Creek continues on into confluence with mainstem of Cape Fear River. Area is famous for deer and turkey hunting , sometimes during in and out of season, and also many horse lovers ride the many trails in this semi-remote area. Stream is subject to bank to bank strainers. Very, very underpaddled stretch of water to be so close to heart of Carolina Canoe Club domain.
