The Ohio Brush Creek is a great place to fish or canoe. These photos were taken at the Creek’s Bend put-in site at the Edge of Appalachia Preserve on Waggoner Riffle Road, in Adams County, Ohio. There’s another beach up stream, at the SR 125 bridge, between West Union and Lynx, and a landing site seven miles downstream at the Brush Creek Campground and ODNR boat ramp east of Manchester, on US Route 52, where Ohio Brush Creek meets the Ohio River.
The Edge of Appalachia Preserve is owned and managed by the Nature Conservancy and the Cincinnati Museum Center. Past cabin guests have enjoyed hiking up to Buzzardroost Rock, in the Preserve. This rock outcropping towers 300 feet above the valley floor.
For current local stream conditions, contact the Edge of Appalachia or the Brush Creek Campground, at the ODNR boat ramp.
