It has come to my attention that the property owner immediately below the rapid at #5 does not own the land at the top of the bank and along the rapid to about it's mid-point. The property owner is, and has been for quite a long time, iamyourhuckleberry. From this thread:
Problems scouting #5 on the Ark
kind of a strange property line, but his family owns from just upstream of the "pump station bridge" down to the half-way point of #5.
It is not acceptable to walk down from the road to scout, but you can scout from the river discretely, if it's a safety issue. Do not linger, do not litter, do not urinate. If you see someone, smile, wave and get back in your boat asap.
