SHUTTLE- put-in on the west fork,just west of Durbin. to reach the take-out- cross the bridge on
co. rd 250-11, conntinue up the hill and make sharp left turn at stop sign still 250-11, veer left
on cr-1 ,road winds around quite a bit. take left on cr-1-24 to the booming metropolis of
hosterman. when in Hosterman the gravel road splits in 2 (both looking like driveways) stay to the
right and arrive at nice parking lot in a couple hundred yards.
DESCRIPTION- This truely is a beautiful,near wilderness river ! On river right the old RR tracks
have been restored and are now the durbin scenic RR. At the terminus of this RR are 5 picnic
tables, privy, and fire ring. beyond this the RR tracks are completely undermined for miles !
At high water levels this stretch will be completed Way to fast (about 1.5 hours) so you might want
to put-in higher on one of the forks or continue down to Cass. Given the right water -levels this
would make a great float fishing river with great riverside camp spots..
Many paddlers would only rate the WW class 1+
