Richard’s Notes on Paddling to Eels Creek:

I have always enjoyed the day paddle up from Stony Lake to High Falls for lunch, a swim and then the paddle back.  It is great day trip.  Make sure you have sturdy footwear that can get wet, a rope to line up and down your canoe and lift-jackets.  Watch out for poison ivy too!  On a sunny day watch for the five lined Skinks sunning themselves on the rocks at high falls. The skinks are at risk so do not disturb them.
