Thanks for the info, guys. I wish I'd known that they've had it out during the summer as it's a real impediment to boating that stretch. By the way, when they first put it in, the USFS improperly did so as part of a modification to the outfitter management plan and never solicited public input from recreational boaters on the action.
It seems like some signage on the bikepath and the ramp could've gone a long way toward eliminating the problem...
Jeff - Sorry I didn't give you a shout - we had a great lil float yesterday with my nephew that you met summer before last on Lodore. He and his honey just moved out to Denver and he is looking for his first raft!
Thanks again everyone,
