Morgan Creek is a lovely tidal creek that is a tributary of the Chester River located east of Chestertown, Md. This is a fantastic beginner paddler. It is a scenic winding river with lots of eagles and great blue herons. Swimming is good at the put-in/lunch spot.
We will meet at 10, launch at 10:30. We will go upriver first, return to the put-in for lunch, and then go downriver if people wish. Put-in is Riley’s Mill Landing. No shuttle.
Directions: Go south on 213 towards Chestertown. Turn left onto Riley’s Mill road and go about 3/4 mile to the water. There are no facilities at the put-in. There is parking for 12 to 15 cars. Upriver distance will be 4 to 6 miles round trip.
Please bring water, sunscreen, and lunch.
