Jefferson National Forest

Custom Search
  Little Mountain is beautiful and can be spotted from Jefferson National Forest; needless to say Barbours Creek flows through this vicinity. In the event that you love whitewater, there is the Route 611 to Craig Creek segment, a type II-III whitewater sweep on Barbours Creek, 7 miles from start to finish. Paddlers on this sweep of Barbours Creek should possess a little familiarity in whitewater paddling. The Route 311 bridge to New Castle portion, a whitewater sweep on Johns Creek is 5.5 miles long. This close by sweep of whitewater is a type III-IV(V).
    This portion of Johns Creek is appropriate for raft paddlers who have been whitewater kayaking and rafting for a period of time. Whitewater rapids are risky things, so you must check conditions before heading out. The Fenwick Nature Trail is a fine hiking trail in the vicinity
of Jefferson National Forest, and Lipes Branch is one of the streams close by that might be worth a visit.
If you donít have a problem getting dripping wet, you can always go whitewater paddling on Barbours Creek.
