The ultimate in rugged Colorado, the Colorado State Forest offers visitors 71,000 acres of forest, jagged peaks and alpine lakes - a true backcountry hiking, camping or hunting experience. If you want to get away from the crowds to camp near turquoise mountain lakes, catch fish and enjoy the unspoiled natural landscape Colorado is famous for, Colorado State Forest is for you. With soaring peaks, mountain lakes, vast stretches of forest and solitude, this is classic Colorado. Trout fishing and pristine mountain scenery add to the attractions. And it's all only a couple of hours west of Fort Collins.

















Visitors with their own horses frequently use the 112 miles of trails and roads. Backcountry access is available and groups may use the park for packtrips and group camping. Horses are not allowed on the Agnes Trail or in designated campgrounds. Contact the park office for information about packtrips, horse rental and camping.

Trails - The Colorado State Forest hosts about 50 miles of marked trails. Hiking trails lead to Ruby Jewel, Kelly, Clear, Agnes and American lakes. Camping and fires are not permitted in the Lake Agnes basin. A National Park Service backcountry permit is necessary when backpacking in the Rocky Mountain National Park. Call (970) 586-1242 for more information.

Mountain biking is a popular activity in the Colorado State Forest, and recreationists can take advantage of 112 miles of trails and roads. Bikers are encouraged to wear helmets and use appropriate safety precautions.
