There is no public access or parking at the bridge right? I'd like to make some laps and maximize the channeled water.
They certainly did shut flows down more than I expected, considering they still have water to be moved...but regardless, specifics.
Grassy Knoll is between Harvard Estates bridge and Frog/Elephant Rock on the Fractions. It is accessed from the highway.
You can park between the state park entrance sign and the gate with the no parking sign and walk over the hill to put in right above #1. We have parked at the gate before. It is AHRA property now (to be turned into a campground and access), but for the time being it's still posted no parking/no trespassing.
You shouldn't park at Scott's bridge, the people that live on the other side get bent out of shape.
Best sections for channelized low flow boating are Pine Creek, #1 to #5.5 and #6 to Grassy Knoll.
