Revenue Bridge, River Mile 23.9: From Highway 26 in Sandy turn north onto Ten Eyck Rd. Follow this road 1.9 miles down into the Sandy gorge and the Revenue Bridge. This bridge is the put-in where a trail leads down to the river on the downstream river left side. Parking is extremely limited and local landowners have complained about the congestion--plan to meet and consolidate vehicles at the take-out or somewhere in the town of Sandy and be quick and efficient with your load and unload. Don't block driveways or tear up the shoulder. A few parking spots are available by heading back up the hill a few hundred yards to the intersection of Ten Eyck Road with Kubitz Road.
Dodge Park, River Mile 18.7:This public park is an intermediate access point at the confluence of the Bull Run with the Sandy River.
Oxbow Park, River Mile 11.0: This is a standard take-out for the run although flatwater paddlers can continue on downstream.
Lewis and Clark State Park, River Mile 2.7: This access is just upstream of the Interstate 84 bridges on river left.
