Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Q: Can I paddle upriver?
A: That depends. If the river is not flowing very fast, paddling upriver between Plymouth and Williamston is not difficult. Westerly winds or faster flows can make upriver paddling a chore for those other than experienced, strong paddlers. During slow flows and gentle breezes, however, a paddle from Jamesville upriver to Devil's Gut and on back to the Lower Deadwater platform, Barred Owl Roost, can take an average paddler only an hour and 15 minutes. Check our web section Trail Tales for paddlers' experiences, some of which refer to paddling upriver.
