Saturday May 27, 2017. Water level 500 cfs on the USGS gauge near Hershey. Weather was overcast, temp about 70. Met at the Boathouse Park at 9 AM, moved boats and went up to the put-in at Swatara Park off of Blacks Bridge Road. Paddlers were Jessica and Jim Aiello, Douglas Hill, Karen Trump, Scott Deiter, Arlene Taylor, and Brian Palmer. Two solo canoes and the rest were kayaks. Launched at 10 AM. Paddled down the 8 miles; stopped at Gravel Hill Road to check out the eagle’s nest. Reached the take-out at Boat House Park at about 1:00 PM. 500 cfs is a good level for this trip. You can get down without scraping if you are careful.
