Anyone know of a trailer friendly takeout on the Eagle by Gypsum?

the defunct ritten house resturaunt looks like it would work. don't know if you could actually back in to the river but you'd be real close. there are fishing acsess campground type areas west of town that could work as well. haven't been down that way in awhile and i know they made some "improvements"... blm may have some info as there are day use fees and picnic areas and stuff.

The Rittenhouse Goes.

The downstream end of the Eddy is good. Backed the trailer up and loaded my dory no problems. It is nota huge Eddy so you do need to be on it a little bit.

Hey Bob, hope you had fun on the river yesterday.

Another really fun option for you is the Eagle River through Minturn. I think it's a really under-appreciated class III run. Hit it a few weeks ago at 350 and thought it was continuous class III with a few more defined drops and the crux being the S-Turns. Put in at Gillman takeout or on Cross Creek just above the confluence with the Eagle. It's currently running 437.

Most of it looked like this:
