The section of the creek was much more enjoyable than the section above it. There was virtually no deadwater paddling.
There is a nice current even in the deep sections in Meadville. There are a few sandy/rocky shoreline areas where you can pull off to stretch your legs. The scenery is quite dismal in Meadville, but as soon as you are out of town, it gets nice again. The creeks runs alongside the Ernst Trail in Meadville, and it was fun to watch the cyclists and runners up on the trail.
8.3 miles as the crow flies, and 15 miles as the creek flows, average speed 4.7 MPH, max speed 8.4 MPH. It took us just under 3 hours, and we weren't paddling very hard.
