Stampede-Dolores 4/30/09 - 2 strainers to beware of

Some friends and I ran Stoner Stampede on the upper Dolores on Saturday 4/30 and there were multiple fallen trees (two areas) that were blocking the entire width of the river.

One place was above the play section and there were three trees that had fallen in the same spot. The river had forked and the trees spanned the width of the river section. No real eddy access, but the flow was only 1,000 and we had time to pull out. You come around a bend, and there is about 40-50 yards to see the tree coming.

The other place was below the play section and there was only one tree down, but again, it spanned the width of the forked river section. Again, no real eddy access, but we were able to get out due to the lower flow. Again, you come around a bend, but have only about 30 yards to get out.

Just wanted to put that out there. A lot of that stretch is private property, so I don't know how well the river debris is maintained.


These were in places where the river would fork and come around a bend to find trees spanning the width of the forked river. The flow was around 1,000 so it was calm enough to get to shore. However, these two places
