Put in at Maddensville Bridge

Technical Guide: 

Aughwick Creek is basically a no-frills float. The put in at Maddensville is under the bridge. Be careful, as it is a bit of a steep drop.

Trip Journal/Log/Report/Diary: 

Put in early in the morning after spending the night in nearby Breezewood. At Maddensville, Little Aughwick and Sideling Hill Creeks come together to form Aughwick Creek. The day we ran it, the creek was still coming down after running high. The bottom is gravel and sand. Passed Blacklog Creek on river right near Rock Hill and Orbisonia. When it's running, it's a decent float.

US 522 follows the creek closely and thus makes it relatively easy for emergency personnel (should the need arise) to find your location. Eight hours after putting in, we were at the confluence with the Juniata River. We paddled across the Junie to Country Club Road, where our friends met us.
