Wedges Creek

This is a terrific but shallow tributary to the Black River.  While not having as many outcrops as neighboring Halls and Robinson Creeks, it does have some terrific boulder gardens and fun rapids.

Thanks for the comments. It is a cool creek! ...but you do need to do it when it isn't so likely a bad time to paddle Wedges.

Thanks for the great tour of Wedges creek. Been on Halls creek many times, mostly wading and fishing, and up and down the Black, but definitely going to check out Wedges with the kayak. Truly wonderful pictures.

I'm not as familiar with that landmark, but I believe Wildcat is just west of Snyder County Park. Above the park of course would be a simple lake paddle. Downstream of the park, it can be a little rocky and shallow but it is pretty nice. The latter section is covered in this review.

How is Wedges creek near intersection of county B across from the wildcat inn?

The mouth of Wedges Creek is on the Black River and is located just off Opelt Road. If you view the map, you'll see the spot (where the little blue line joins the big blue line).
