Paddle from Crooked River SP to Brickhill Bluff Campground (primitive)

My Report:

by Greg Bailey

We launched Friday morning and paddled down the Crooked River, crossed the ICWW and stopped at Plum Orchard. Quick tour and snack break and we were back on the water, moving up Brickhill River until we reach the primitive camping area at Brickhill Bluff. There we setup camp for two nights, mixing walking tours and paddling tours over the next two days. Distance out approximately 12 miles.

Sunday we broke camp and paddling south down the ICWW until we reached the end of Crooked River. Turning west at that point, we paddled back to the Crooked River SP, unloaded our gear and headed home. Distance back was approximately 14 miles.

Total group size - 14 paddlers.
Great weather made for great pictures.
