Gates of Ladore directions

Looking for beta on the best way to get to the Ladore put-in from the Front Range (Colorado Springs). I drove there many years ago but remember the route we picked being painfully slow. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I-70 to Rifle, go north, hang a left at Maybelle, another left at Lodore to the put in. Watch out for deer after dark, you'll hit rabbits on the road into Lodore no matter how hard you try not to. Its still a long way but its worth it once you get there.

Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse

If you are doing your own shuttle, extra vehicles should be dropped at the takeout first.

Either on the way home or going to Split Mtn, there is a shortcut between US-40 and CO-64 that skips Rangely on the way to/from Meeker.
