Dolores River - Gateway to Dewey Bridge (Colorado River)

Colorado-US   Utah-US  

Description

This last stretch of the Dolores before joining the Colorado River lives in a remote section of Colorado and Utah.  This is mainly a class II to III run with one IV rapid at the stateline.  Again the hardest part of running the Dolores is catching it when there is water.  This makes for a short season.  

The shuttle is extremely long so you may want to check into a shuttle company.
