Turn left onto a property access road and pass through a wire gate onto a two track road that will lead south then east across a field to the river.  Park at the access path in front of the monitoring equipment.  A 4-wheel drive vehicle is necessary to access the two track road.  If a 4-wheel drive vehicle is unavailable or if road conditions are wet, park on the side of CR 43.7 and walk down the two track road to the station.
