Scenery and an abundance of opportunities for access draw you in and trails lead the way to the rugged canyons, big mountains, wildlife, and history of the Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre, and Gunnison National Forests. Over three thousand miles of trails and routes provide access to areas of rugged beauty and solitude. Many were carved by indigenous peoples, early explorers, and miners, and offer an experience that connects users to the land and to the prehistoric and historic past. The topography allows the forest to provide trails—beginner to extreme—all year. The mountains, plateau, and mesa that make up the forest will always provide a scenic backdrop and thus a component of the quality of life in the area.
We invite you to visit our forest and enjoy the beauty, history and challenges it has to offer.
