Stockton Creek

The conditions were perfect - calm, no wind and great company. A group of 7 (Owen Walton & Anne Moore (Central Coast Canoe Club) Carrie Elliott, John Beesley, Marni Smart, Darren Forbes & Mark Bretag (HVCC) paddled up Dora Creek and into Stockton Creek. We came  across a few other paddlers with John & Owen managing to break through some thicker vegetation to reach the point where the freeway crossed the creek. Most of the creek had steep banks and any access points were muddy and therefore difficult to get out. We did find a spot on the way back to have some lunch. A nice paddle of 14 km return.
