Due to a lapse in federal funding, this USDA website will not be actively updated. Once funding has been reestablished, online operations will continue. On-going operational updates will be posted here (https://www.fs.fed.us/shutdown) as we are able to provide them.



Hundreds of miles of trails will lure you from open prairie to gently sloping foothills and open forest to steep rocky slopes and wind-swept tundra. Hiking guides are available at ranger district offices. The guides describe the trails and identify special regulations, such as restrictions on dogs or horses, permit requirements, or other special trail regulations.
