Jordan Lake - Northeast Creek II Trip
Put In - The Northeast 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 - 6.4 miles/4 hours/2 MPH Avg
Above Average - based on the portage to the Put In.
Trip Directions - Headed right from the shore and went under the 751 bridge. This second trip was done because Jordan Lake is 4 feet above full pool, so the creek should be more accessible. And it was! Was able to go up to Panther Creek and could have gone further if not for a large blockage of logs and tree limbs.
Scenery - First warm day before spring. Wind high on the way back. I saw many birds and wildlife on this trip. Turtles, geese, ducks, turkey, eagle, ospreys and nest, egrets, and beavers.
Hazards - Getting lost, if it was not for my GPS, it would have been a struggle getting back. Got side tracked even with the GPS.
