Notes from 2017...The put in is a long walk along a busy highway then down a steep hill with unstable footing. The takeout is even more challenging! They blocked the access lane to keep local troublemakers from vandalizing the area. We did not know this and had to drag our boats and gear over a 5 foot pile of brush and climb around riprap then up the >12' hill and walk along the shoulder of a very busy road 1/8 mile to our cars.
