Wise Creek River Access
I’m going to be optimistic here. As of this typing, the Wise Creek River Access point on FS Road 1098 is closed. Prior construction of a seawall at the river’s edge collapsed, exposing some rebar, and making the location unsafe – so the USFS closed it a couple of years ago. But work is underway to remove the hazard and hopefully the location will be open again soon. For now you can park at the concrete barriers on FS Road 1098 a hundred yards or so from Smith Mill Road and accomplish pretty much the same hiking and mountain biking accessibility as from the river. Canoeing and kayaking are a different story – use of this popular takeout point will have to wait until the repairs are complete.
