MTNF The Narrows, Highway 142 River Access

Homepage  |  Hwy 142 Access  |  Turtle Island  |  Ridge Runner Trail 
The Narrows are the last access (take out) point of the Eleven Point National Scenic River.  The entire plan is in the annual flood plain, so the facilities must be resistant to flood damage.  The asphalt road is constructed with edge "tie downs" that prevent the flood waters from undermining the road surface.  The dock and river access ramp a place to take best advantage of the oncoming flood waters, while maintaining the undisturbed natural vegetation along the waters edge.  Loading and unloading are easily handled at "peak times" due to the additional pull off surface located between the dock entrance and the driving lane.
