Horse Creek Access - Colorado River Update

Hey River Rats, construction of the new ramp, driveway, restroom and parking lot at the Horse Creek Launch Site at Colorado River Ranch is moving along as planned. The site is 12 miles upriver from Dotsero, about 7 miles downstream from Pinball and 5 miles upstream from Cottonwood. The Horse Creek Rapid (Class II) lies about 100 yards downstream from the access point.

The driveway becomes one lane under the railroad trestle, so caution should be exercised. While the entire 1000+ acre Colorado River Ranch is protected by a conservation easement, public access is only permitted at the launch site. Camping is not allowed.

We are planning a grand opening on Friday, September 13 at 3:00 PM at the site, please join us to celebrate this exciting accomplishment. This project has been completed through a partnership between Eagle County Open Space, Great Outdoors Colorado, The Conservation Fund, Colorado Open Lands and the owners of Colorado River Ranch.

Please help us operate the site effectively by packing out trash, driving slowly, exiting the launch area promptly, and being nice to other ramp users. As always, please feel free to call me with questions.

This is great news. Thanks for all Eagle County Open Space has done! I can't wait to check it out.

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
