Upon Arrival: 

Driving east on Highway 36 a few miles pasta swimmer's delight you will see a large pull out to your right. Pull over here and park.

The Hike: 

It's a steep but manageable decent down to the river. Not recommended if you don't have stable footing. There appear to be easier trails down to the river but at the time of writing this they are all overgrown with poison oak.

The Beach: 

Smooth river rocks and patches of sand make up the shore. It is easy to find a comfortable spot to lounge.

Swimming: 

The riverbed is composed primarily of sand, making this an excellent swimming spot.
