Turn right and follow Hwy 141 for ½ mile. Turn left and cross the San Miguel River on a concrete bridge. Follow the river downstream as it drops into a small canyon to the confluence with the Dolores River at mile 4.5. Continue on the river road as it meanders through a deep river canyon. About 3 miles from the confluence, the narrow canyon opens to the Paradox Valley. Cross the valley floor and meet Hwy 90. Turn right on Hwy 90 and cross the Dolores River at Bedrock. This is an extremely scenic section. Limited services and water are available at the Bedrock Store.
