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)

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) (Class N/A, Mile 1.2)

This is an alternate put-in location, if parking and access cannot be secured upstream.



Ellis Run Road / 44 (Class N/A, Mile 3.3)

Alternate take-out.



Take-out (Class N/A, Mile 5.0)

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'.)
