Access Details

The Broad River can be accessed by portaging boats 500 feet from the parking area. This river access can be used to avoid portaging the Neal Shoals Dam.

Trip Details

This trip is very short. Upon reaching the Neal Shoals Dam, paddlers should stick to the left side of the river, exiting before the buoy line. A short portage will bring you to the parking area which is at the end of Shoals Road.
