Travel south of Bandon on Hwy 101 for about 8 miles. About 200 ft. past Milepost 283, turn west on Croft Road. Go about 1.6 miles where the road will turn sharply to the left and the pavement ends. Just before the curve, go straight on a dirt road. Take this road for 0.4 miles to the host site (sometimes this location is closed to motor vehicles so be prepared to walk from here). From the host site, go left and continue to a “T” in the road. Turn right and you will shortly find a parking area and a trail to the river.Directions
