GOOSE CREEK PROJECTS
Author Last Post
Pam and Alf went up (2018) to the Walkley Hill "put-in" and found it totally unusable - 10-foot cliff into the creek. - We later (2018) checked out another park-site on river/reservoir left hard by the Leesburg Greenway bridge that LoCo Parks was also touting as a put-in. Crappy - no parking and a 500-yard carry down to the water. We're now (2018/19) using the river-left site just off Sycolin Rd bridge.
Item #14: While tooling around looking for access to Goose Creek I happened upon a park on the river in the Goose Creek Preserve subdivision. Signs currently state the park (to be named Goose Creek Pointe Park) is closed to the public. When I emailed the county, Mark Novak got back to me saying they plan to open the park mid-summer. It wouldn't be the easiest place to put in (there wasn't a lot of beachy access), but it is potentially a public access point. The only other problem I could see with this park is the lack of parking. The entrance/trail head is at the end of a cul-de-sac surrounded by houses. On street parking would be very limited. The park is at the end of Walkley Hill Pl. if anyone wants to check it out.

ACCESS PROJECTS – C&O Canal - GOOSE CREEK

This set of problems affects access to the Potomac River across (or under) the C&O Canal. We grade the difficulty individual “fixes” as simple to difficult largely by the ease of getting machinery to the site. Our all day visit of 3 Nov went to the 6underlinedsites, including Weverton up by Harpers Ferry.We're looking for people interested in working on these over the winter.CCA Access subCtee: John Snitzer, Alf Cooley, Barb Brown, Kathleen Sengstock, David Cottingham.15 Jan 2018
