In the area where the failed Brownbridge Dam used to be, a
limited access landing was established 20 years ago. Since it was at the foot of a dam, people
were not allowed to drive down to the river. The path is steep and about 150
yards long. Carrying boats and gear up
and down that hill was not something anyone liked to do. The BRCS now has limited access there for
doing cleanups but public access is still restricted until a safe lower parking
lot is completed. We hope to convince
the authorities to allow access to the public this year. There are no sanitary
facilities or trash cans at this landing.
Now that the dam and the lake are gone, the "new"
rapidly moving river section has become a popular destination for
paddlers. Many more people use the
landing and the parking lot at the top of the hill and there needs to be a
toilet and trash can there to help keep the river and landing area clean and
