This route becomes un-passable 1/4 mile past I-10 by at least 3 major log jams. There is no way to get gear or boats over this due to high, steaply sloped banks on both sides. Luckly, this occured just south of I-10 and not in the middle of the 10 mi stretch from I-10 to Brown's landing. That would have been very bad!
Also, you pretty much need a 4x4 truck to get to the put in point at the bridge in Wilcox. There is a large hole that you have to drive through, or (what we did) drive down the bank on the south side of the bridge. And, there is not really access at I-10. There is a service trail under the bridge but, once again, you need a 4x4. Best bet is to take out at the 87 bridge ( marked 83 on the maps. You can access the 87 bridge by taking Hwy 90 south, then take a left at 87. the bridge is about 1 mile after you pass over I-10. Hope this helps someone else have a better trip.
