This access point entry is located at the west-end, right between where the one-way bridges of Oak and Washington Avenues come together at Madrone Street. This access is private property that we have permission to use at this time. That permission may be revoked at any time if anyone mistreats this property. You can drive right to the water’s edge onto the gravel bar on the west side of the river. A 4×4 truck is recommended, because it is possible to get stuck in river rock. But people do drive 2-wheel-drive trucks to the waters edge and do not get stuck.

The island is private property as is the dry riverbed. Do not drive on the island at any time for any reason.
