North Platte: Prospect to Bennet Peak

The drive to Pickaroon looks long and bumpy .... looking at the acess on the west side "Prospect", looks a lot closer to the highway. Any experiance driving down to Prospect launch?

What would be the min amt of flow to go from Prospect to Bennet Peak in a 16' paddle boat? We don't mind a little walking in the shallows.

Any idea what the shuttle time will be from Prospect to Bennet Peak?

I'm guessing that if there is not enough water from Pickaroon to BenPk, we might be able to go plan B and go from BenRk to Treasure Island and expect more water to work with on this lower section. True?

Trip is planned for last weekend in June: 2-16'paddle boats and 6 adults & 6 kids ........ 3 days & 2 nights .....

Any feedback would be appriciated ..... thanks NedHeads

Saw some trucks parked down there over memorial day weekend.

Not sure there will be any water left the last weekend in June. The Pumphouse run on the Colorado is always a nice backup.
