A good place to access the Collins River is on Shellsford Rd in Warren County. If you have a second vehicle to use for a shuttle, leave it at Wild Bill’s BBQ & Grill for a $5 fee. It is roughly a 5-mile trip from Shellsford to Wild Bills. This a comfortable 4-hour trip of paddling through the peaceful Warren County countryside.
If you do not have a vehicle to drop, just plan for a there and back trip to Shellsford Rd.
