This is a shorter trip than Jacobstown Rd takeout by about 1.5 miles, but has a much easier/gentler exit onto a flatter area, also not on a gravel road like Jacobstown Rd is. Jacobstown also requires scaling a boulder/gravel riprap shoreline. Just past 1st bridge, exit river on left, you will see grassy shoreline. Nice wide parking area in grass shoulder.
