August 3, 2015 - Golden Cedar River Recon
I went down to Gladwin to check out the Golden Cedar River in Gladwin in
preparation for a cleanup that I am leading for Jay's Sporting Goods of Clare.
It is a pretty little river and should be a lot of fun to paddle with these really
nice sponsors of the BRCS.
Here are the photos and GPS coordinates of the important points of interest .
 Put-in is at a private residence.  
Coordinates 44.005506, -84.525642 - Verified
The river at the put-in.
The river at the take-out.
 Take-out - right downtown at the Riverwalk Parking Lot
Coordinates 43.980551, -84.495982 - Verified.
It's an easy 3.6 mile shuttle on all paved roads.
I hope a few of you sign up to try this river with us.
It's about the same distance as going to the Sturgeon.
