  • Named for Alan Shepard, the first American to go into space, in 1961.
A fun outing. A good option is to ride mountain bikes out the gated road from behind Lower Bridge Campground, making for a quick and scenic 6 miles along the river. Pack light, a 35m rope will suffice for all the routes. To locate the tower, look for two plywood picnic tables on the right side of the road. It's in a broad flat area and if the tables are gone, you will then come to a junction with a private road branching left. From the tables, walk back (upstream) about 200 feet, then head straight up the hill for no more than 10 minutes. The tower is on the downhill edge of a large open area near the ridgeline. Bring some beers and watch for eagles and osprey cruising the canyon! Oct 28, 2017
