This is Jones County Heritage Day celebration. We joined the parade at the Fairgrounds and then paddled Brock Mill Pone and Crooked Run.
This is the story of our trip on this most unusual and very enjoyable paddle. Anyone can drop the canoes and kayaks in at the parking area at the dam and experience what we saw today.
Thats me paddling away frm our put-in.
Here is a view of the old mill house. Original was built here in 1735 .

Please notice there is no duck weed here.
We are upstream far enough to get out of it.
of Jones County. We joined the parade which lasted about one hour and then
paddled the Brocks Mill Pond and the creek which is Crooked Run.
Trenton and Jones County should clear out Crooked Run as far as possible upstream.
It would make an excellent paddle trail.
We have no idea what the blown down trees obstructing paddling are. We believe we
can have several more miles of upstream paddling if they were cut out.
Anyone want to help us do this?
