Banister Launch

Soon to be complete, the King's Bridge Gateway on the Banister River. This new river launch site will make paddling the Banister River that much easier and more enjoyable. Located at the new VA 360 Bridge replacement project the launch overlooks the historic King's Bridge stone pylons, navigation sluice and "line of rocks". An easy paddle upstream to the dam is worth the effort and then a scenic float downstream 6 miles to Terry's Bridge (US 360). The take-out is a scramble up the sandy slope under the bridge but easy-moderate as far as primitive access goes. Definitely a trip wrth taking and lots of well preserved navigational sluices and fish traps along the way.

Our many thanks go to Carl Espy Town Manger, Rodney and Carl of Watts Construction, Don Mosley and Harman of Harman Saunders Construction for all the extra effort in making htis become a reality.
