Dolores River trip suggestions

Hey Ya'all, just like everyone else planning on doing the Dolores this spring. Been 20+ years since the one and only time I ran it so I don't remember much. Gonna do Bradfield bridge to Slick Rock/Dolores Canyon and maybe adding on Slickrock to Bedrock. Commercial trips run both sections in 3 days, is this realistic or should I plan on more days, I like layovers and don't like to push but I've only got 7 days for the trip. Sounds like it will be running 2,000 cfs when were planning on going, late April/early May. Also, saw that Slick Rock is private access, if we take out at Slick Rock how does that work. Any info, places to hike, camp, layover, etc., would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Dogs are fine, but in order to keep it that way, please pick up after them and manage them - ie, no chasing or threatening other campers or wildlife.

Here's good info:

And there are several other threads on here with info.

Good luck and have fun!
