Dolores River - Paradox and Mesa Canyon (Bedrock to Gateway)

Colorado-US  

Description

This 2 to 3 day stretch of the Dolores is a nice family scenic float (when the water is running).  Paradox and Mesa canyons offer a nice wilderness experience and several camps. From Bedrock until you reach Paradox Canyon there is mostly flatwater.

Where the San Miguel river joins the Dolores in between Paradox and Mesa canyons you can expect more water below there.
