Tubing on the Yellow Breeches Creek

I know this is last minute but it is going to be hot

This meetup event consists of floating down the yellow breeches creek just south of Mechanicsburg Pa for about 2 hours getting off the water then possibly continuing down the creek another 2 or 3 hours if the water level permits.

THOSE COMING FROM THE YORK AREA AND LOOKING FOR THE SIMPLEST ROUTE. Take 83 NOTRH TO 581 WEST TO 15 SOUTH TO 114 SOUTH Strait thru 2 traffic lights l.. and its a couple hundred Yards.. on the left

As in past years, We'll meet at Simpson park, ( off south Market St. Rt 114 Past red light in Bowmansdale on left side ) and carpool to the covered bridge at Messiah College

I do NOT have an air compressor (only a small car operated compressor and a foot pump so you will need your own tube and a way to blow it up

    I've heard the water is kind of high for tubing - is that true on the breaches?

    July 6, 2013

  • John

    Does anyone know if the water level is high enough for kayaking? It was kind of low a few weeks ago and we were bottomed in a a few spots. Also, is someone instrested in working together in put-in-put-out transportation so that we don't have to paddle back to the put-in spot? Thanks. John

    you got my response then cool looked at a pdf map ans seen you can go safely to yellow breeches park, is this correct and are all these meetings going to be so late in the day from now on or is it because of the kayak event going on???
