The question isn’t what can you do in the White River National Forest, but what can’t you do in the nation’s largest national forest. With 2.3 million acres of land spanning ten Colorado counties, the White River National Forest is the top recreation forest in the entire country, and it’s right in our backyard. Access the White River National Forest from Glenwood Springs and you can go biking, camping, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting, wildlife viewing, picnicking, four-wheel and scenic driving, canoeing, rafting, kayaking, skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and more!
The White River National Forest is vast; some special places nearby include Sunlight Mountain Resort, the Flat Tops Trail Scenic Byway and West Elk Scenic Loop, as well as interesting historical places such as the Crystal Mill near Marble.
