Idaho springs boat ramp?

Is there a spot where I can back the trailer and launch right into the river near Idaho springs? I've floated past the spot known as the Ranger Station, but never really noticed what bank access looked like. I want to put in below outer limits and run to kermit's this afternoon.

Dave, not sure if it's legal to use the ramp that gets used right by the usfs building. I think they carry down anyhow.

Honestly I can't think of another place where you could back down to. There's one by the argo (I think HAT uses that one?), but I'm not sure if they'd let you use it or not.

Thanks Kaleb. While not the best ramp, the one at the ranger station got us right to to the water. Still plenty of flow for an oar rig.
