Quick Description: It starts as a trickle from a small wetlands on a Motocross Course (of all places) just north of Andover, Ohio. The river joins with the east branch to the north and flows into Lake Erie in the city of Ashtabula, Ohio. We were able to cross the motocross course and follow the river to the source. It seemed feasible to do so. There were no postings to ward off intruders and no clue as to which home in the area the property would belong to.

Long Description:
From Wikipedia:
The Ashtabula River is a river located northeast of Cleveland in Ohio. The river flows into Lake Erie at the city of Ashtabula. It is 40 mi (64 km) in length and drains 137 mi² (355 km²).

The Iroquois called the Ashtabula river "Hash-tah-buh-lah", meaning "river of many fish".

In 1985 the river was named an Area of Concern by the International Joint Commission, primarily because of Fields Brook, a tributary that had received discharges from 19 industries between the 1940s - 1970s.
