Competition -> Falcon Access Points

Recommended Posts

My dad and are floating between Competition and Falcon and spending one night on the river. Could someone please tell me where the access points are near Competition and Falcon?

Oh this is gonna hurt :blink:

Ok, so Mayfield spring (cave) is just a short drive from the crossroads (Competition), it's not marked very well and the best directions I could give on here would just confuse you.  I gotta say though, if you paddle upstream from Mayfield about 1.5 miles there is a bluff hole and set of riffles that are the best I've ever seen or fished.  

There are 2 other worthwhile forest service accesses between there and Falcon....but again directions in text would be a waste of time.   

Chuck Tryon wrote a book and he has some maps in there that will get you really close, but you'll still have to do a bit of freelance exploring to find them the first time.   Don't go in a car, or a 2wd vehicle.   Zero phone service down in there so if you get stuck you're just gonna have to homestead and start eating off the land.    

It's a good stretch of river.  Enjoy.  ?

Thanks for the info. :) 

We'll be taking two cars to shuttle our kayaks. Unless you know of anyone that would provide shutting services?

You might talk to the folks at the little crossroads store.  One of the girls husband/bf shuttled us once.  It was a bone-buster ride in the back of a flatbed, but it got us where we wanted to be. 

The last I heard, the campground there below Falcon was closed due to death of the owner.  Before that they used to run shuttles in an old white Ford 3/4 ton.
