Read this Before Paddling Disclaimer Paddling on the non-t idal, placid Rancocas Creek can become a dangerous activity. Dangers range from abrupt seasonal weather changes, rapid rise and fall of creek water levels, unimproved and rustic landings and launches, sun, cold, seasonal ice, low waters, snags and strainers, mud banks, dams, portages, and other natural and man- made objects. Paddling on the tidal sections of the Rancocas Creek increases risks of paddling. Always consult a tide- c hart before paddling. On tidal waters stay alert for others. The Rancocas Creek is a destination for jet-s kis and motorized boats, folks hunting, trapping, and fishing. Water temperatures on the Creek impact your safety and having a fun paddle. Rescue from the local Emergency Squads will have to locate you before evacuating safely. Always asses the paddling segment your paddling, prev ailing weather conditions and your own skill levels. This guide is by no means an instruction manual: it is a way to introduce you to locations along the Rancocas Creek Water Tra il (RCWT) and what you can expect to encounter, where landings are found and conditions of those landings, where amenities are located, how to portage around dams, and what points o f heritage one is paddling through. Both the tidal and the non-t idal sections of the RCWT brings paddlers into variable, changing conditions. Descriptions may not look like the photos and maps. Different water levels change one’s views along the RCWT. You paddle at your own discretion. You use your own judgements to make decisions when paddling the RCWT. While the non- tidal sections of the RCWT are ideal for beginning paddlers, the tidal reaches risks make the RCNWT suited for intermediate and expert paddlers. Guidebooks such as this may be wrong at a specific date and time. B ase your paddling actions on “What If”. What if something goes wrong, what can I do to be safe? Always wear a life jacket ( PFD). Never paddle alone. Always leave and follow a paddle plan. Make sure to inspect paddling gear beforehand. As you gain experience you gain a level of comfort and underst anding of your paddling skills. Experience comes from paddling and discussing your paddling plans w others: either in person or vis social media. This guidebook and social media platforms cannot take the place of experience. The author of the guidebook assumes no responsibility and can in no way be held responsible or liable for any accident, injuri es, damages caused directly or indirectly from information i n this guide book. The author cannot be held responsible if paddlers do not obey basic, fundamental safe paddling practices. The author is not responsible if paddlers ignore safety warnings along the RCWT, and a failure to obey posted rules and regulations found along the RCWT, accessing private property a long the RCWT is not welcomed by private landowners. Respect access. There are many good ways to learn about paddle sports. Locally the Outdoor Club of South Jersey and the Phil adelphia Canoe Club provide ways to enhance your paddling skills. Check out the American Canoe Association web site for additional information on paddle sports. w ww.americancanoe.or g for courses and classes in safe paddling.
