2006-12-06, Newport River, Deep Creek by Ed Gruca


The above will take you on this nice short trip at Newport. He calls the ramp “at River Rat”. River Rat is right there but it is the Wildlife Ramp on Old Route 70 in Newport.

Gary Scruggs has sung his praises of Deep Creek many times. I have not paddled it. Sounds like some blowdowns need to be removed to make it navigable for its entire lenght. If volunteers of the Newport River want to do this sometime, let us know and we will try to help them.
