River Description

Put-in: There is no bridge across the river on East Branch Road. The final 100 meters of East Branch Road (to the river) are 'abandoned' and are now private property. Please request permission at the last house on right to park and carry down to river.
Take-out: Hwy.45 "Military Bridge"

This makes a good play run at higher water. There are no 'major' drops which would require scouting by competent whitewater boaters.

Image resolution on Google is pretty good. Go to the 'Map' tab, click "USGS Aerial", double-click near put-in or take-out, and zoom in to maximum resolution to do a 'virtual walk' down this river. Again, there are no major drops, so you'll not really see too much other than the general 'lay of the land'.

Gage Descriptions

There is presently no online gauge which reasonably reports flows applicable for this reach. The gauge formerly cited (on the Middle Branch downstream of the confluence with the East Branch) has gone unfunded (been disabled). The Middle Branch is largely dewatered by the Bond Falls 'diversion', so the greater part of the flow which that gauge had reported is actually from the East Branch. (Note: The Baltimore River also dumps into the Middle Branch above the confluence with the East Branch, and is a free-flowing (undammed) stream, so part of the Middle Branch flow at the confluence and the gauge represents it's flow.)
