Station Rd. to Rockside Rd.
7.9 miles/5 hrs.
After putting in at the new CVNP access at Chippewa Creek, we will paddle only a short distance before portaging around the Brecksville Dam. Below the dam a lively current will carry us through the Pinery Narrows where we will see a heron rookery and an active eagle nest. We will also pass Sagamore Creek and Tinkers Creek (the largest Cuyahoga River tributary). A rocky rapid below Stone Road will add some excitement before our take-out at Rockside Road. For paddlers who can control a boat in moving water.
