Thanks to Robyn and friends we got a copule of great shots of their Meherrin paddle this past Sunday. 8.3 miles from Rustic Rd. To Robinsons Ferry.

Other than a little slippery mud at the take-out Robyn says "...It took us about 5.5-6 hours, including stopping for lunch and we just took our time floating along. Everyone, young and old, had a great time! 35 yaks and 6 canoes!!!"

This is picture exhibits the "classic country style" where you do what you have to to navigate the river banks. You gotta love it!

We need to work to get some access easements and some river launches in place. If anyone is actively pursuing this on the Meherrin please let us know and we'll help however we can. We'd love to follow your activities and let others know the stretches to paddle and the best places to access.
