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.
