Deer River Meadows

I apologize in advance if this has already been posted... I saw something on this area from 2007- but still not clear to me.

If one just wanted to paddle the 9 mile, so called 'deer river meadows' section of the deer river- where is the put-in / take out?
thanks!

There is detailed info and a map in Adirondack Canoe Waters: North Flow

You can put in at Red Tavern Road and take out on the network of dirt roads in the Deer River State Forest off Reynoldston Road.

Thanks, I have the book- but it seems to indicate you must paddle the entire 14 mile section from Red Tavern Road to the take out in Deer River State forest. I was hoping to just do the 8-9 mile 'meadows' section- the Adirondack Waterways brochure seems to indicate you can do this via roads...but it looks like the map in that brochure is incorrect.

In my experience it's been pretty difficult finding a put-in below the High Falls rapids; the ACW: North Flow provided information that may no longer be available, regarding the dirt roads off Reynoldston(Eddy) Road. There's a lot of private property in that area now, specifically on Dale Road which seems to be the most direct route to the Meadows.
From Red Tavern road we were able to paddle @ a mile before we hit an uncanoeable stretch of rapids.
We tried one or two other possibilities before we gave this one a pass. Perhaps in the future, with higher water and a lighter canoe, we'll be able to get there. Good luck.
