Users can now access the river at State Bridge via stairs located down river of the main ramp. This alternative is targeted towards those without trailers.
On busy days rafts without trailers may be instructed to use the stairs instead of the ramp. It's a great option if you cannot meet the concrete ramp's 5 minute load/unload requirement.
I agree, Eagle County seems to have been going above an beyond expectations. They have improved several river access points on the Upper C in the last few years. Im sure the thousands of people who use the river every year appreciate it as much as I do.
