My wife and I decided to take a trip to Paint Creek and explore Paint Creek branch of the two rivers. We were surprised at the width of the creek, a lot wider than expected. You share space with quite a few fishermen, but as mentioned, plenty of room to pass by.

The scenery was great, rock cliffs with vegetation, overhanging cliffs, and rock formations along the shore. A great deal of waterfowl, Blue Heron and hawks along the way.

We paddled about 3 miles up the creek before we had to turn around due to time. The creek was still wide and deep, when we turned around, there was a good size pontoon boat with a group fishing just ahead.

We look forward to returning and trying the Rattlesnake Creek.


We put in at the Taylor Road boat ramp. One of the cleanest ramps we've seen. No moss on the ramp, no fuel/oil floating in the water, not slippery at all. You do have boat traffic coming in and out.
