To get there: Take the route 208 exit from route I-80 (about mile marker 40) and take 208 east towards Emlenton. Once down beside the Allegheny, take the bridge across to Emlenton. Continue on this road as it bends left and climbs out of town. Turn left after the cemetary on Dotter Road. Follow this road, keeping to the left at intersections, over one tiny creek to the bridge over Mill Creek. This is the take-out. You'll know you're there if you can see the old stone bridge downstream from the current bridge. There is parking all along the road near this bridge.
To get to the put-in continue across the bridge and climb up out of the valley again. Take the first right, and follow it to another first right on Shotgun Club Road. Follow this road to the first intersection and turn right. The bridge for the put-in is about half a mile down this road, with a couple of parking spots.
