Ohio Brush Creek Canoe/Kayak Access Grand Opening set for April 20

Photos by Tom Cross – 

A ribbon cutting ceremony for the two new personal watercraft access sites on Ohio Brush Creek in Adams County has been set for April 20 and the public is invited.
A project by the Adams County Travel and Visitors Bureau, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, and the Ohio Department of Transportation to provide canoe and kayak access to Ohio Brush Creek was completed in late November 2016. The two access sites are located off St. Rt. 348 at the St. Rt. 348 Bridge over Ohio Brush Creek and at the St. Rt. 125 Bridge. Parking is available at both sites.
According to ODNR, canoes and kayaks are the fastest growing segment of watercraft usage and Ohio Brush Creek is a beautiful free flowing stream and considered one of the gems in southwest Ohio.
With that in mind, the Adams County Travel and Visitors Bureau looked to tap into this growing trend and sought funding to undertake the project. The two new canoe access sites will open recreational opportunities for both visitors and residents and will provide a boost to eco-tourism and appreciation of Adams County’s outdoors for years to come.


A $15,000 grant from ODNR provided all the funding necessary to develop the two sites. ODOT provided the locations, new signage, and improved the parking area at the St. Rt. 125 Bridge.
The ribbon cutting will begin at 10 a.m. at the St. Rt. 348 Bridge, then participants will launch canoes and float the approximately three miles to the St. Rt. 125 Bridge where another ribbon cutting will be held and refreshments served.
Contributions and support by Adams County Soil and Water and Ty Pell & Associates are helping to make this ribbon-cutting event possible.
This project is one of many that has been undertaken by the Adams County Travel and Visitors Bureau to enhance and develop tourism in Adams County.
For more information about the grand opening, contact the Adams County Travel and Visitors Bureau at (937) 544-5639 or email info@adamscountytravel.org. The rain date for the event will be April 27.
