I have been encouraging all my clients to have proper grover equipment for Upper C as well as anywhere really on the river to be prepared. Like others have said, posting of sighs, and stricter regulations would be best, so does not even become a problem.

Let's all do what we can to improve the situation. It's a beautiful and fun area but it has become an embarrassment to the boating community and needs to change, I never plan to be there during peak use. Mostly because I don't like to see people making poor decision with consequences that extend far beyond the individual.

I hope so but the BLM will probably continue with building more , camps , waves, and other attractions without a thought or care of where peoples shit and garbage ends up. People volunteering (Gremlin good on you for trying to make a difference) to help is great but how do you enforce rules that don't exist ? What a shame for the Upper C it is a special place for me I padded my first kayak there in 1996 and my first date with my wife was rancho to state bridge. The damage done since then is astonishing.

Due to potential environmental degradation concerns, BLM removed the pit toilets, and we are working on getting the supplemental rules enacted as soon as possible. In the meantime, we ask for your help in monitoring the situation and making other visitors aware of ways to keep the river corridor safe and healthy. BLM will do the same with signage and personnel presence during the busy summer season. If you would like to volunteer to help educate people about groovers or other Leave No Trace ethics, please contact me at or 970-724-3008. If you would like to comment on past, present, or future decisions or get more information on management goals, please feel free to contact me.
