PAN Access Advisory

Goose Creek, VA, near VA 621
Evergreen Mills Road bridge


by Bing Garthright, 301-330-1225, August 2004


There are two fair accesses near the Evergreen Mills Road (VA 621) bridge, 2.5 miles downstream from US 15. 


At the south (right bank) end of the bridge, turn onto Watson Road, VA 860.  About 20 yards from the turn, there is parking for at least 4 cars.  Walk over a high bank and down a bare dirt path to a mud and rock beach.  The carry is about 60 yards and fairly steep.  As of June 2004, this area was not posted. 


A potentially easier access is on the left bank, upstream from the VA 621 bridge.  Use the dirt driveway that’s posted as “No Trespassing” by Mr. Herbert C. Bohrer of Leesburg, VA, 703-327-4265.  In a June 2004 phone conversation, Mr. Bohrer assured Bing Garthright that paddlers are welcome so long as they don’t add to the serious littering problems on that site.  If you use this access, take a trash bag and help out Mr. Bohrer. 


PLEASE NOTE: Most private owners and organizations never invite paddlers to use their land.  Many are kind enough to tolerate it.  Just as we paddle at our own risk, we use advisories, parking spaces, and access sites at our own risk.
