Check with the ranger station about where you can and can't go The forest is very interesting with the blow down area, the previous forest fires and the wild fires.

We rented a Jeep and headed to Routt National Forest to explore the beautiful landscape. Breathtaking views all around to soak up and enjoy. Whether Jeep riding, hiking, biking or any other exploration, pack a lunch and head out to enjoy this beautiful landscape.

Great place to visit. Lots of scenic views. Easy and hard hikes. Something for everyone with nice little towns scatted in and out along the way.

The west side of Rabbit Ears Pass is reserved for skiing and snowshoeing, while the East side is for snow mobiles. It is a super place to get out in the forest. There are several loops and most of them are moderate to advanced. You...More
