Slickrock To Bedrock


This is a beautiful desert multi-day run.  Unfortunately the season doesn't last as long as the stretched on the nearby Green and Colorady rivers so look to run this during spring runoff.  This isn't a whitewater intensive section of the Dolores but is still worthwhile if you're in the area.

Suggested river levels for paddling this section of the Dolores River are between a bare minimum of 900cfs and a high of 3,800cfs. River conditions sourced from USGS 09180000, the Dolores River Near Cisco Remember only watercraft are permitted at Slickrock to Bedrock.
