Dip site?

Anyone know if there is a safe path to a dip site on the river near Glenwood? It looks like L35 will get there, but is there a lot of traffic on that road? I hear Glenwood will have a mobile dip station, but that is not the same. How has this been done other times Glenwood was the start town? I’m thinking of riding to the river Friday morning as I drive into the state. Any suggestions will be appreciated!

This route will get you to the same spot near Lincoln Ridgeview Farms but with less traffic than taking L35 plus you get to pass through Pacific Junction – https://ridewithgps.com/routes/14915642

crew, does anyone have a link to googlemaps of the route they are thinking about from the Missouri River to Glenwood. I was trying to figure it out from the dialogue above, but no dice. Will be drinking the bud for sure, but since this is my 1t, want to do the whole thing right. cheers, eric b.

Here is the official route:

https://www.google.com/maps/dir/41.0485293,-95.7322656/40.9962394,-95.8602391/@41.0228207,-95.8317364,13z/am=t/data=!3m1!4b1

And here is genefruit’s route:

Take your pick. In both cases I show you leaving county L35 on the paved (maybe?) road that leads to the dip site. There is another road that goes to the site, it is closer to the river (pretty much straight across L35 from Karns Road on genefruit’s route) and it is definitely gravel. Both are gated and I do not know which one will be open for us but I’m guessing the paved entrance, not that it would be much trouble to get around either gate. The main/paved gate is posted no trespassing but we are invited guests.
