River Description

There are significant access issues due to the fact the part of this reach goes through a county park. There are 2 falls just below the put-in. The upper is 15 ft and the lower is 25 ft. Below this the creek winds through the park coming to pond and 10 ft dam. After the dam the creek goes through the village of Akron with a few weirs and one rapid stretch just before the take out point.
