River Description


Put In
Beacroft Trailhead: google map.
Bottom of trail at Tadpole Creek:  google map. Elevation = 2850 feet.

Take Out: Boaters can stop at Euchre Bar google map and hike up a trail to Euchre Bar Trailhead google map, but this forces a 50 mile shuttle that takes an hour and a half each direction. Most boaters continue on through Giant Gap to exit at Colfax-Iowa Hill Rd. google map. This shuttle is about 30 miles and takes about an hour each way. Others continue on through the Chamberlain Falls section to Colfax-Foresthill Rd.  google map which reduces the shuttle to 28 miles and less than an hour each way.

Has anyone hiked into this run in 2012 or 2013? The information floating around the web seems to indicate the Beacroft trail is overgrown and nearly impassable.
