Paddle with the Mill Creek Yacht Club!
Paddling with the seasoned guides of the Mill Creek Yacht Club is the best way to experience the wonders of the Mill Creek while learning about our long-abused but surprisingly resurgent urban stream. Join the Commodore and other Yacht Club veterans on Saturday, October 16th, as we explore the Mill Creek in our boats. On this urban stream adventure you will gain panoramic views of stream channelization, enjoy the beauty of tree-lined riparian corridor, and paddle past the Lick Run project and under the Western Hills Viaduct.
The paddling voyage will commence at Salway Park in Spring Grove Village and finish at the the Mill Creek Barrier Dam, a distance of about 4 miles. We will spend about 3 hours on the water with educational stops along the way, plus about an hour of combined time on the land before and after paddling. Water level may create need for last minute changes in route plan and/or dragging of canoes at times.
Registration for the paddle is open now through noon on Friday, October 15th, or until all available seats have been reserved. Register today, seats are limited! This is our last urban stream adventure of 2021!

Our current MCA water quality monitoring program results indicate that the Mill Creek meets secondary recreational contact standards. (The secondary contact recreation classification describes aquatic activities when immersion is unlikely, such as boating, wading, and rowing.) Until we are able to achieve primary contact standards (under which swimming and full body immersion is considered safe), we recommend paddlers take care not to ingest or swim in the water and wash carefully after recreation activity.
