The White River National Forest offers hundreds of miles of trails for horseback riding, hiking, fishing and hunting. With mountains rising above 12,000’, covered with evergreens, aspen and lush open parks, the White River Area is considered as the most beautiful as well as the best of all hunting.
The White River National Forest of Northwest Colorado is adjacent to the famous Flat Top Wilderness, east of Meeker and about 200 miles west of Denver. This area has twice as many elk as any other area in Colorado, and Colorado has more elk than any other state or country in the world.
Recreation includes horseback riding, hiking, photography, nature study, fishing and hunting. Wild flowers blanket the mountain sides and early risers will have the opportunity to see deer and elk along with many species of birds and smaller animals. In all ways, this forest is beautiful, bountiful and productive.
