Weather and water level permitting we'll shuttle the boats to the 3700 Sylvan Ave boat ramp on the West Fork of the Trinity. We'll go down Mountain Creek to Sylvan (about 6+ miles) and enjoy Eagle Ford shale, some small rapids, go past the confluence of West and Elm Forks, see springs and seeps and local flora and fauna. It's easy access and we're planning a meal to cap it off. We'll be discussing details "at the Party".
