Good gradient on this creek starts just downstream of Himes Road (T-28) at about 740' elevation. If one can secure parking and access near there, it could be worth adding to the length of the run.
Drainage area at his point is ~9 square miles (according to calculation using USGS StreamStats 4.0 Beta software).
This is an alternate put-in location, if parking and access cannot be secured upstream.
Gradient pretty much runs out around Slickaway Rd/763 at somewhere under 500' elevation. Drainage area at his point is ~19.7 square miles (according to calculation using USGS StreamStats 4.0 Beta software).(Downstreeam, this creek runs into the Ohio River at a location with listed pool elevation of 485'.)
