River Description

There is a concrete/culvert low water bridge about 1/2 mile above the confluence with the Dry Fork. It is easy to spot but do not get to close. Portage on right or take-out here. When the Evenwood gauge is 5.5' and higher the bridge will be underwater so access is blocked for a longer trip with a take-out on the Dry Fork.

Also see the other sections of the Glady Fork:

1, Glady to US 33 Bridge (I-II)

Ran this 3/21/2011 several strainers in this river especially above the sully bridge. i put in just
off of Rt 33 a mile past the alpine shores hotel, the first 7 miles of this is class 2 water but
very quick, there is a wire stretched across the river about neck high. When you see a wire fence
and posted signs be looking for this wire as if the water is high it could create some serious
problems. This is a fun warm up paddle. After the bridge at sully the river turns into a very nice
class 2 to 3 run with lots of twists and turns. this runs right along the glady fork campground,
some nice small holes to surf if the water is up. I would highly suggest not running @ less than
400 cfs as this river drops fast so it could make for a long day. Great beginner run.
