I'm thinking of doing Hog Creek with our 5 year old for her first trip. my questions is this.....What is the current like going back up Hog Creek on your way back to the entry point?

Just curious as I begin to formulate this trip.

Thanks!

You won't even notice the current. That is a great area for a 5 year old.

We have done that trip. Just know there are a lot of lift-overs on beaver dams. Also a lot of tight turns. It would be a little challenging to do in a mn3

We take a 18 foot Alumacraft and yeah it takes a bit of practice but you can get it down pretty quick.
