THIS RUN CURRENTLY HAS NO ACCESS TO THE PUT-IN USING THE BENNETT DESCRIPTION. There is a gate on the put-in rd. due to a washout just beyond the gate. The gate is early in the shuttle (about 8 miles before the put-in) and would make a hike-in less managable.

According to google it's possible to gain access on two other roads.
