River Description

Little Bluestone is a laid back run as far as creeks go, but its tributaries can get wild if you have the guts to check them out. They are Suck Creek, White Oak Branch, Parker Creek, Spicelick Creek, and Jumping Branch. I have not explored them fully but the map says that they have lots of gradient in store. Put in at the CR 27 bidge near Nimitz. Take out at the confluence with the Bluestone River on CR 27 which is only vehicle passable on its south end near Ellison.
