This public access point is the Carl C Hill wayside area. It is a no-fee area and there is parking for around 20 vehicles. River access is by trail only. There are good trails at the SW & SE corners of park. There is a lot of exposed bedrock here. We observed numerous dredge holes and cobble piles at this location, which is approximately 3-miles downstream from Coffee Creek, one of the richest tributaries of the South Umpqua River.
