Did the run from Canon City to Florence River Park yesterday. While they show a right hand portage at CF&I dam, it isn't obvious. I found a barely tolerable way because I had few options and had takeout lined up at Florence. Wouldn't recommend it, pain for an IK, and may involve some trespassing, though that isn't very clear. Soooo, if someone is wanting to run all the way from the new Pink House put in down, plan on taking out at Reynolds St in Canon and putting in again at Pathfinder Park.
For an IK if you wanted to put in above the Weir (the dam just below Pink House), there is a spot on the bank with a somewhat steep 8' climb down. Not massively hard, but bad knees, ankles, etc would probably not want to. Have fun sunday jones.
Pathfinder park would be a nice put in for a Swallows Canyon run if you wanted another hour or so on river. Good ramp there for a raft too.
