Known hazard at some levels.  Theoretically, this is an access point, but there is no parking anywhere around, and in recent years, boaters have been accosted by the Sheriff when attempting to use this crossing as a put-in or takeout.  Recommend taking out at Reimers Ranch instead.

The Comal County Commissioner's Court is taking measures that will restrict access to the Guadalupe River indefinitely. AW's primary objective on the Guadalupe is to restore access as soon as possible and to make sure that boater access does not impede on-going rescue and recovery efforts.
