Any landowners who have access to the Trent that we could use we would love to hear from you.
Also, Jones County owns several parcels of land along the river. Please, send us maps of these so we may explore them
for possible access points. We do not even need a ramp. We just need to be able to get to the water and have a place to drop
our boats in the water.
Franky Howard, Jones County Manager, provided such an access at Chinquapin Chapel Road on his trip with us coming down from
Comfort. We need more like it Franky. Please have the maps of County owned land e-mailed to us.

Jason a Wildlife Ranger was there. He had loaded our several bags of trash and the TV and other miscellaneous stuff onto his
pick up truck. We left these here last week. He appreciated this very much. He said he was heading for Haywood Landing.
We told him about the abandoned large boat that was left there just before the ramp.

We came upon this which we thought was construction trash. We now believe it is “land plaster” used to improve the soil.
This is actually along the shore of the subdivision at the end of Paul Road. Someone removed the other one at the
dock and park and did an excellent job. We ate our lunch there.
That is why we call them “strainers”. This one is loaded with trash. We will have to come back another day to get it.
We got out of our of our canoe and dragged it over the tree trunk at the left shore.
