The White Store
This trip is on Drakes Creek starting at Saddlers Ford Road and the take-out is the Highway 622 overpass. This trip should be about 9 miles in length. From Saddlers Ford to Woody Atkinson Ford is 5 Miles. We'll portage around Woody Adkinson Ford. From there to HWY 622 is an additional 4 miles. This trip could take about 5 hours on the water, depending on river flow.
This section has a rock formation we can climb for lunch and to enjoy the view. There is also a side creek at the same location that would be nice to explore.
On previous trip we met at the white store at Hwy 31W (Nashville Rd.) and Hwy 240 intersection and it worked well, so we will make it our meet-up location. From this location we will travel to the put-in to drop the gear.
This is a class I paddle. Be sure to bring a life vest, a change of clothes and dress for chilly water. After all the recent rains, we never know what the condition the river will be in so, please, come prepared.
