Falls Lake - Upper Barton Creek IV Trip
Put In - Located at the Upper Barton Creek boat ramp on Six Forks Road. Put in on the right side of the boat ramps.
Distance/Time - 6 miles/3 hours
Difficulty - Difficult because of a night paddle
Trip Directions - This was a full moon trip so was on the lake about 7:30PM to wait for moon rise at 8:55pm. Head left or east towards Blue Jay Point. Third time as a night paddle. Paddled to the Blue Jay Point and hiked around. Clouds arrived soon after moon rise, only saw the moon for a short while.
Scenery - Osprey nest near Blue Jay Point was not being used this time. Man made stand.
Hazards - Motor boats everywhere, be careful. Was at night so made sure I had my flashing red lamp on the back of the boat, and a head lamp that I could turn on when boats appeared.
