I paddle this about once a year. There are always a few blowdowns but the creek is passable up to Chambers Bridge Road and a bit further upstream. It would be great to be able to paddle from Lake Shannandoah to Forge Pond but the number of really big trees across the stream make that exceedingly difficult so the out and back route from route 88 is the most practical.

This Historic area was used by the Native American Lenni Lenape Tribe as a summer meeting place. The beautiful natural lake Leeds into a gently flowing river. As you paddle upstream you will see an abundance of wild life, including fish, turtles, ducks, Osprey and much more . This quiet and beautiful area will provide a great day on the water. Bring plenty to drink, this is an undisturbed nature preserve. Leave no trace.
