I'm moving to New Albany this summer. My wife and I like to kayak rivers and creeks... and I see "Silver Creek" runs through my new home town!

Has anyone here paddled any of the creek? Is it worth the time to bother?

Thanks!

I've kind of hiked/mucked my way around the portion near where it runs into the Ohio and it was a little nasty. I also don't know if there are very many good access points around town. The hills are a little steep on each side in parts and I think a lot of it buds up against private property.

I would suggest heading over to the Blue River. There are businesses that rent canoes/kayaks in both Milltown (on state road 64) and Fredericksburg (farther north on US 150) on the Blue and I'm sure you could find a place to park and put your own kayaks in if you wanted. It's not more than a 30 minute drive from New Albany to either of those places and the river is very nice.

Here's the link for the place in Milltown (Cave Country Canoes on Blue River)
