Falls Lake - Highway 50 II Trip
Put In - Located at the Highway 50 Boat Ramp on Creedmoor Road. Put in on the upper right side of the boat ramps. A nice peninsula allows for a nice put in near a lone pine tree. Parking is near this peninsula.
Distance/Time - 7.7 miles/3.6 hours/2 MPH
Difficulty - Average
Trip Directions - Headed for the Highway 50 bridge and then stayed on the north side of the shoreline heading to Sandling Beach. Never made the beach since I found a real nice access road that let me hike various old roads and trails in the park. This is state park land so no hunting is allowed so that was good since it was a Saturday. Found various old homestead foundations and ponds. Very interesting area to explore.
Scenery - Never saw so many egrets/herons, they were everywhere today. As it was so warm, a lot of birds were out. The lake is back to its normal full pool, 251 feet.
Hazards - None.
