Looks like yesterday the Land Exchange was approved on the Blue River. I e-mailed inquiring about when the new takeout would be open and ready.
How is this enforced?The big drawback is that (as I understand it) is you can take out, but you can't put in at Spring Creek. This means you still have to deal with lining your boat down the bank to put in below the dam. If the Bureau of Reclamation ever decided they want to limit the use of the land below the dam, there would be no access to the Blue below the dam.
I guess I meant in the future, once theres a "It's not. While I've never put in at spring creek there ain't nothing stopping ya except a sign, a railing, and a shitty hike down to the river.
You can see the plans for more parking ect on the Blue Valley web site.How will this affect the Gore Canyon launch site at the confluence? The description of a "Confluence Recreation Area" sounds like a lot of infrastructure to be built in a place with a relatively small footprint. More traffic until these modifications are in place? The parking at the confluence of the Blue and Colorado is already pushed to capacity on some August weekends.
