Looking at map I don't see any obvious point take out after miracle mile. If that starts at railroad trestle put in.
We are driving up Sat for a short paddle before dark and then full day granite to mt. harvard take out. Maybe we'll just go to play park if it is too late for river run.
The Harvard Estates Bridge (Mt. Harvard Circle?) is not a public takeout and folks that live there will and do get uptight when boaters use it. The highway bluff takeout you refer to is what is generally, locally known as the Grassy Knoll and is public. I think Logan was referring to running the Miracle Mile at micro levels and hiking back up the rio left trail to the RR bridge. A short and sweet run could be putting in above #6 and taking out at Miner's Campground or the RR Bridge. You could also put in above #4 on rio left and take out at 5 and a half.
