Listed data is just for Sand Island Creek. It is unknown whether access is possible via a road
which is shown the river (on river-left, near the confluence of Sand Island and the Black River).
It is highly likely that (rather than hazarding that access) boaters will instead opt to continue
down the final mile of the 'Middle Black' to take out at Great Conglomerate Falls.
