Gateway To Dewey Bridge (Colorado River)
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.
Suggested river levels for paddling this section of the Dolores River are between a bare minimum of 900cfs and a high of 5,000cfs.
