US Forest Service Offices

The Colorado Trail passes through six national forests and 11 U.S. Forest Service ranger districts as it winds its way from Denver to Durango. While most Forest Service offices cannot provide specific information about the CT itself, they can be particularly useful in providing information on the condition of backcountry access routes (Forest Service roads, etc.) to CT trailheads.

We offer two lists of US Forest Service information, Ranger districts from Denver to Durango and office information for the National Forests and ranger districts:
