WILDCAT CREEK RIVER SEGMENTS
North Fork: Adams Mill to Knop Lake

North Fork Lower Valley: Burlington to Adams Mill | Adams Mill to Knop Lake | Knop Lake to Mis-So-La | Mis-So-La to Wildcat Park | Wildcat Park to Peters Mill | Peters Mill to Davis Ferry

Distance: At 13.6 miles this section generally takes 5-7 hours to float.

River Features: This section offers scenic canoeing in a natural segment of the creek. About 1 mile downstream of the put-in you will pass under the Adams Mill Covered Bridge. About 1 mile later you will pass under a railroad bridge, and 1/2 mile after that the creek flows under the SR 75 bridge.

Downstream of the State Road 75 bridge (just past Cutler) deer, beaver, muskrats and various hawks and owls may be seen. About 4.5 miles later you will pass under the Prince William Road Bridge. Then 2.7 miles later, after a series of riffles, the creek flows under the Lancaster Covered Bridge (Co. Rd. 500 W bridge), which is well preserved and popular with photographers. About 1 mile later you will pass under a railroad bridge, and about 1/2 mile after that the creek passes under the SR 421 bridge. In 2.3 more miles you will come to the Knop Lake take-out on the left bank. The sign for the take-out is not easy to see, but there is a notable medium-size, round rock in the middle of the creek.

Hazards:

 

Important: The river is constantly changing. Hazards like log jams and tree falls will come and go, so always be ready for them. Riffles will appear and disappear based on water flow levels. Do not attempt boating on this or any river during high water. Please be safe, respectful and responsible on the river.
