River Description

Tennessee Tim provides (2007-10-24):

nice creek . . . smooth creek bed entire length. Biggest ledge (is) 5 foot. Fairly easy. Rest of run 2-3 foot ledges straight foward. Very little broken ledges or 'boogie' water. Water quality medium.

Most similar stream comparison in greater cincinnatti - Stonelick, Banklick, Polk Run.

Rapid Descriptions

Start of good gradient

Class - N/A Mile - 0
Rapid Thumbnail Missing

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).

Hwy.41 Bridge (just N. of Buttermilk Pike / T-3A)

If the footer on the take-out bridge is covered, you have really good flow.

Due to small watershed, does not hold levels long.

New Hydro Project for Cuyahoga (OH)

Thomas O'Keefe

The Cuyahoga River, the river that burned, played a pivotal role in the birth of the nation's river conservation movement. While restoration gains have been significant, a proposal for a new hydropower project on a dam targeted for removal would represent a signficant setback in ongoing restoration efforts and would delay for at least half a century any effort to bring back the lost whitewater that sits buried behind the Ohio Edison Gorge Dam. Paddler participation at upcoming scoping meetings is important.
