Spotlights

Starr Sno-Park

This state sponsored Sno-Park provides parking near the west end of the Forest's snowmobile trail system.  Located on the south side of beautiful Canyon Mountain visitors will find miles of groomed snowmobile trails to enjoy. 

Devine Summit Trail #318

This popular interpretive trail offers easy hiking and biking during the summer months.  During the winter months this trail becomes snow covered, creating a wonderful opportunity for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.  Benches are placed at convenient locations as the trail rambles through stands of mountain mahogany, sage and rabbit brush.  Eventually, the trail follows along a gentle rock rim of welded tuff before climbing a gradual ridge to Devine Summit.  Keep your eyes peeled for white-headed woodpeckers along the trail.  No stock or OHV are allowed on the trail.
