Pennsylvania whitewater, Muddy Creek - Slippery Rock Tributary

Lawrence county, to Slippery Rock Creek section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS V     0.35 miles
I used to live off the creek. My grandfather had a home 'Tomahawk' just below the bridge. I canoed this creek many times as a child. And unless the creek has become more 'violent' rafting is not difficult. It takes some know how, but not an expert. It's great fun. We did it in a canoe, rafting should be a breeze. Says Lynne Snyder
