To reach the put-in, drive along the river to Highway 410 mile 88.4 and turn south onto Bumping River Road. You will immediately come to a bridge across the American. This is a potential access or you can continue on in to American Forks Campground and take out at the confluence with the Bumping River which is just downstream of the bridge on river right. The take-out is on the Naches River at Sawmill Flat Campground.
