The access point consists of a large slow flowing pool during the summer. The water flow may be faster during winter months. There is a good-sized parking area. Must cross the train tracks to reach the river. There are no shallow parts for children. The area is private land but the site is a known river access spot and is sponsored by the Cantara Trustee Council and the United States Forest Service.
