Description:

Ten Mile Creek: Waynesburg to Clarksville
Put in right past the I-79 Interchange near Waynesburg (Behind Bortz Chevrolet). Had about 25 yards to carry boats to get river access. Took out at Ten Mile County Park near Clarksville.

Trip can only be done when water is high. Class 1 and 2 rapids- beware of a collapsed road that created a dam and then a bit of a waterfall (good times though!). Trip took about 5 hours- with only 1 stop.

Plenty of waterfowl - blue heron, kingfishers, ducks, geese. Saw a beaver as well. Beautiful scenery- and some not so beautiful.

You supposedly need a permit to use the Ten Mile Creek Boat Launch-didn't know until afterwards. If you fish and kayak, this would be a great creek to do it on.

This is only for a spring trip - water levels need to be high to be able to make it down successfully. Go after good rain.

Accommodations:

Primitive along creek. At Ten Mile County Park there are facilities.

Fees:

I believe there is one for the Park.

Directions:

Route 21 West past the I-79 Interchange, look for Elm Drive (by Bortz dealership). Make a left before bridge- park on right side of road.

We had to have someone pick us up at Ten Mile County Park and shuttle the cars. To reach Ten Mile County Park, take 88N through Carmichaels. Green Cove Marina will be on right (at bottom of a hill), cross bridge and go left. Go about 100 yards, turn left into park.
