Takeout below Rifle?

Does anyone know where the next closest raft takeout is after Rifle?

Cottonwood park in Parachute - 17 river miles down from rifle. I don't know of any inbetween, but that doesn't mean there aren't any.

U might want to check out rulison also. If I remember right, there's access near the bridge but I can't remember if there's a ramp or not... Worth a look though

Nice night float, all the gas rigs are lit up like Christmas trees. And if you really quiet you can hear the incredible loud fracking equipment.

There is a take-out between Rifle and Rullison (at least there was several years ago, havent been back since) off of a dirt road once you get over the hill heading west on 6. Hard to explain but easy to find. You can take out at Rullison but it does not have a ramp and you have to carry boats over rocks, not easy.
