you have to take out on the left -- besides the steep bank they don't like people on the power plant property that covers the whole right bank. There is a crappy little picnic area and then you have to squeeze onto the narrow berm of 879 to haul your boat past the dam. You can get back in below the parking lot of the little store/ice cream stand past the bridge and just before where Trout Run comes in from the NE. There is not a lot of traffic on that part of 879 but what does come, comes fast.
Very cool that you plan to do the whole Branch. I have bugged my beau about us doing it but he thinks the section downstream from his place is "boring". I think he got spoiled for adrenaline in his younger days of whitewater paddling. I think the West Branch is a beautiful stream and hope it gets its well-deserved Wild and Scenic status soon.
