Watauga River Access at Guy Ford Road Issue:

The parking area to access the Watauga River at Guy Ford Road is privately owned. This means we could lose access at any time. We have been working to purchase the 2.3 acre property on the downstream river left side of Guy Ford for about 2 years. This is about to come to fruition, securing a permanent public access to the river.

This site provides a put-in to the Watauga Gorge section of the river below Guy Ford Road, as well as a take-out point for Section 3.  In addition, this property will provide river access for fishing, swimming, picnicking, and other activities for residents and visitors alike.

A bit about the process

A couple weeks ago, I took some friends down the Upper Tumwater section of the Wenatchee River. It had been a while since I’d paddled this stretch, but it is a very wide section of the river and the rapids are seemingly less difficult than the main section of Tumwater Canyon. It is still considered class III-IV, especially when paddled at higher volumes.

The first rapid of the run starts after about 3/4 of a mile of flat water. It consists of a large entry wave followed by several exploding laterals and tapers off into some boogie that braids through a shallow boulder garden. The day we paddled it, we dropped in just assuming everything was all good. Bad call on my part.
