The White River National Forest is comprised of “2.3 million acres. With 11  ski resorts, eight Wilderness areas, 10 mountain  peaks over 14,000 feet and 2,500 miles of trails”.

Some of these areas are not in the area covered by this travel guide, but many of them are. 

The office for the White River National Forest is in Glenwood Springs. 

The maps and publications section of the website is my favorite. 

This is protection of public lands at its finest!
