Description: Granite Launch features a metal ramp allowing you to slide your raft directly down into the canyon and onto a fabricated loading area on the river. To access the put-in, head west on highway 178 from Wofford Heights Blvd / Highway 55 and then take the first exit labeled 42 called Bodfish and Havilah.

History: The Division of Boating and Waterways (DWB) built this access point for $145,000. (Source.)
