Crabtree Creek (Umstead State Park), North Carolina, US
Old Reedy Creek Road to Ebenezer Church Road
||I(II) (for normal flows)
Take Harrison Ave exit on I-40, drive towards Cary, turn left on Weston Pkwy, then right on Old
Reedy Creek Road.
Ebenezer Church Road bridge.
This run is difficult due to many downed trees. Do not run this creek at high water.
This is a peaceful run through Umstead State Park
. There are several
rapids near the Company Mill Trail. The Old Company Mill Dam creates a Class II rapid. This creek
runs through the Crabtree Natural Area and Piedmont Beech Natural Area. The frequent downed trees
make this run difficult and at times, frustrating. The solitude and natural features are an oasis
in the middle of urban sprawl. Even though the majority of this run is flatwater, the current
remains swift. This run can be continued through Raleigh to the confluence of the Neuse River.
