Jordan Lake - Morgan Creek Trip
Put In - The Morgan Creek access is off of 751at the first bridge crossing coming from the north. It is on south/west side of the bridge, look for a gravel area. A trail leads down to a nice sandy beach. The prior trip here required at least a 100 yard walk to the put in, now a nice easy trail exists down to the lake, bypassing the pond trail.
Distance/Time - 9.9 miles/4 hours/3 MPH Avg
Above Average - based on the portage to the Put In.
Trip Directions - Head southwest from the put in, heading straight for the tip of the peninsula that splits Morgan Creek and New Hope Creek. Morgan Creek is on the left side of the peninsula heading north. You can stop at the Eagle Observation Platform also that is straight across from the small island.
Scenery - Much wildlife(birds) were about today. The wind was for me on the way up Morgan Creek, the return trip was a good workout for the start of the season. Morgan Creek became impassable and I had to turn around. Found an fire access road that you could see that a control burn had been done. It looks like another control burn is going to happen in the area, as signs are posted for restricted access to the area.
Hazards - None.
