Dunbars Option: Down a bumpy, pothole ridden dirt path past the “Dunbars Bottling Company” in Lehighton is a wide rocky beach that will eat your car’s suspension. Enter at your own risk. You can drop off or pick up here, but please don’t park here for the day. All cars left in the vicinity should be parked back out on the main road in the back of the Dollar Store lot and paddlers will have to hoof it back to the river. There are no facilities at Dunbars.
