Lower Owyhee, Birch Creek ramp?

How hard is it to get a raft out of the water at Birch Creek? Any kind of ramp where you can get a trailer into or near the water? If not, how far (and how steep) do you have to lug it? TIA

I just stole this pic off the internet. But you can back close to the water. Its a dirt ramp. I would not back a trailer into the water

Thanks! Looks doable, with dry roads of course.

Ramp?

Getting your boat out of the water is the easiest part of taking out at birch. The road out can be pretty dicey.

I might add that when we have had shuttles ran in the past, they do not reccomend trailers over 12'. Having towed a trailer out of birch i agree with this... i use a 4" drop hitch on my pickup and would consider taking a second straight hitch for all the creek crossings as i drug my hitch several times.
