Just south of Erie Pennsylvania the historic French Creek, founded by none other than George Washington, will provide the avid canoe fan a two-day float they will never forget.&nbsp; Embedded along the shore banks of small towns and deep forests French Creek is the perfect canoe river.&nbsp; Not too big not too small this river will take you into the thick forests of northwest Pennsylvania winding you through rich wildlife ecosystems.&nbsp; Just remember to keep your head up or the small rapids will engulf your canoe and before you know it you are swimming.&nbsp; Enjoy this two-day float with a friend or a brigade.&nbsp; Don&rsquo;t forget your camera and sunscreen.&nbsp; Take a fishing pole or swimming trunks and enjoy one of the many fishing holes or for the more adventous jumping from the crossing railroad tressels.&nbsp; Many islands along the way provide the perfect location for setting up camp and enjoying a night under the stars.&nbsp; Note that the closer you get to Franklin the more tactical the river becomes so set your sights, find a partner, and enjoy this river the way George Washington did, by way of a canoe!<br />
