Looking for someone who has paddled this section. Want more details for drop off and how long it took. Was water rough, good for kids age 12 and above? Says Engle

The put-in is not too far from Hagerstown-Martinsburg, if you're not familiar with the area there's a road map further down the page. The wonderful West Virginia scenery and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream will make you feel great. There are so many
    sections to paddle in this river system, the Sleepy Creek Dam to CR9 section is just one of many. If you've been whitewater rafting and kayaking outside this state you might find the rivers here a bit more forgiving, so
don't forget that quite a few of the sections in this state are pretty easy. Getting a good workout and just being out on the river for a while are great reasons to come.
