New Cowpasture River Access Point at Sharron Park Now Open

A new boat landing on the Cowpasture River is officially opening today July 17, 2013 at 4PM.  It is located at Sharron Park about 8 miles upstream of the James River Lick Run access point. 

This new boat landing opens up an scenic section of Cowpasture River with mostly moving water with a few easy straight forward rapids with great views of the surrounding mountains. Near Iron Gate, the Cowpasture meets the Jackson River to form the James River, which flows through neighboring Botetourt and Rockbridge counties on its way to the Chesapeake Bay.

The Cow pasture river is normally runnable in the Spring but can be runnable latter in the season depending on rain events.  The new boat landing was constructed adjacent to the Sharron Community park which features a picnic pavilion, parking lot, and a trail to the ramp access down to the river.

The park and boat landing owned and managed by the Alleghany County Parks & Recreation Department.   Check out this YouTube video to see clips of the access point and some river shots.
