Trip Reports

May 22 Manistee Woodpecker Creek to Red Bridge

 | Published on 5/22/2016
The Manistee was really cranking along on Sunday.  We clocked 4.2mph while doing a firm air brace.  Even faster with a paddle in the water.
We put in at Woodpecker Creek, just down from Hodenpyl.
woodpecker creek access
This access is much easier than Hodenpyl and shortens the trip only a little bit.
The marsh marigolds were in good form.
A great time was had by all.
