Resources: SCSO, EMS: SCEMS, Primary SAR: Wind River SAR

Access: MP7, Wind River Hwy (R7E, T4N, Sec 36, NW 1/4)

Description:A popular area for fishing, with a parking lot on the west side of the hwy, this area is access by a series of steep trails down the east wall of the riverís ravine.

Note: There is a trail from the north end of the main parking lot (purple area below), which splits into at least two different routes. North of that is a smaller "No Parking" area (small purple area), which also has a trail that splits.

South of the main parking lot is another trail that traverses steep areas to the river bank.

SAR: Steep, to high angle ropes rescue is likely called for in patient extraction from the riverís edge. Helicopter hoist operations, while tricky, have been accomplished from the ravine.
