Sorry , I was testing the pic loader before posting.

Yep , finally got it in the water . We had the Pale Whale canoe livery take us up to the 4 mile drop point . There are 10 & 18 mile drop points , but I wanted to see how Morgan would do on a short run . She did really well and loves the new boat , but was more concerned with how many snack breaks we would take so she could play in the 55 degree water . snow doh rofl

The Clarion river is beautiful up in that area . We'll have to try the 10 mile when the water warms up a little more to swim and do a little fishing . thumbs

You did pick a nice area to take the first float in.

I was just there a couple weeks ago. How long of a drive is it for you to get to Cook Forest? Looks like it was a good trip!

Awesome! You may have the right idea there 4x. There aren't enough OHV trails out there, ya might as well take to water!
Good to see you putting some of those DCNR funds to good use! haha

I can get there in about an hour & half . Great place with tons of family activities from Go-carts , canoeing & tubing , trout fishing , horses , waterparks and the Deer Ranch . Lots of beautiful lodges & cabins to stay in or pitch a tent in one of the many campgrounds . Don't forget to take the hike through the Old Growth forest trail . Those trees are HUGE ! There are at least 3 great float areas within a half hour of Cook Forest . Ones I'd like to do this summer are Allegheny above Tionesta and Tionesta creek above Nebraska bridge . I'm not really sure how deep or navagable Tionesta creek is above the bridge , but I know it's a beautiful area where the road meets it in a few spots . I'd have to have partners though because it can get pretty remote in sections .

I was also considering something some of our members here may be interested in . Stillers / Scrubgrass ride area borders Mahoning Creek . On one of his ( weekend ) events , maybe we could ride in the morning then after lunch when it's hot , have Redbank Valley Outfitters ( Official Vendor ) shuttle us up stream for a nice cool float trip . Get back to our vehicles & quads in time for supper and an evening ride ???? thumbs
