This spring time urban stream adventure will travel down the Mill Creek from Reading to Carthage. The MCYC veterans will prepare paddlers for departure (put-in) at the Mike Haffey Ballfields in Reading (45215), near Koenig Park.
Paddlers will enjoy scenic views and blossoms along the creek to the take-0ut at Caldwell Playground, 316 W. North Bend Road, Cincinnati (45216). Total distance of travel is approximately 4½ miles and will take roughly 3¾ hours.
Challenges on this section of the stream include:
jagged and sharp objects in stream
required portaging of your canoe or kayak
low-head dams that can be hard to navigate
slow current and shallow waters during dry spells
strainers – overhanging branches where water current and depth are navigable
rocky riffles that are difficult to paddle or portage
Opportunities in this section include: stream life (plants and animals), view of recent restoration projects, and so much more.
