Put-in for take out at Pine Bluff Rd.


Erik S. from Prairie Coast Paddler mailing list notes the following:
"Park on the south side of 113, west of the river - else you may have an irate landowner visiting you. Also be careful to stay off the highway - the speed limit on 113 is 55, and the cars seem to be going at least that fast."

And more From Tom L on PCP mailing list:
"Erik is correct that you can take out at Pine Bluff. there is a poorly maintained two track on the Southwest side of the bridge, which can usually be negotiated almost all of the way to the river w 4w dr..

The 113 put in is on the sw side of the bridge. You must park west of the house next to the river, so it is a hundred yard carry."

This is an easier put-in alternative to the 113 Put-in. It is 3 miles east of Mazon. To get to you need to turn off RT. 47 and go east, Grand Ridge Rd dead ends 3 miles east at an old bridge that is closed. Put in just upstream of the closed bridge. Waterflow should be checked before paddling the Mazon River it should be at least 150 cfs or more.
