Six Runs Creek 3/31/01 Trip Report
- As one paddler said, "My favorite river is the
one I am currently paddling." Today 19 paddlers
paddled the Six Runs Creek, in Sampson County from Hwy 24
down to Needmore Rd (SR1004) a distance of 6.2 miles.
The river level this morning was almost 10 ft at the
Clear Run Gauging Station on the Black River which is
approximately 20+ miles down river. The water had a good
current which made the trip fast. There were no portages
and no major problems as far as trees down. Wildlife
seen on this trip were blue herons, squirrels, snake,
hawks, and a plethora of other birds. The morning
started out with a few rain sprikles but cleared up to a
bright, sunny, warm day and a GREAT day for paddling.
Leaders were Don & Sandy Meece, and other paddlers were
Bob Roberson, Jim & Mia McDermott and dogs, Frank &
Katie Dupin, Gary Scruggs, Jim Depree, Marsha Tai, Pam
Cline, Chris Raper, Bob Guckel, Isabella Hudgins,
Rudolph Floyd, Andy Harnsberger, Bruce Langdon, Charles
West and Renate Schuchardt.
