Canoe Annapolis County Route 11 - Barrys Stillwater

Route 11 – Barrys Stillwater

The route follows a section of the east branch of the Round Hill River, coursing through low meadow
and gentle, flat water. The entry point at Gibsons Mill was the site of a water-powered saw mill generations
ago, where pieces of mill gear can still be found in and around the brook. The route is undeveloped, and offers
a secluded paddle through its entire length. There are no sand beaches along this route, but local people have
traditionally used a sandy portion of the brook, at the bridge on the Spurr Road, for swimming. The portages
are not well established, but are relatively short. In moderate to high water levels, it is possible to line those
portions that are not navigable.
