Current Conditions Reports by Ranger District

Conditions can change rapidly. Always check weather reports prior to your trip.

The White River National Forest converts the Forest road system to wheeled use from over-snow winter use on May 21 in most areas. Motorized users are responsible for knowing where they can and can't take a motorized vehicle. Please refer to our Motor Vehicle Use Maps (MVUMs) page for this information.

Please note that e-bikes are considered motorized vehicles and are allowed on roads and trails open to motorized use, but are not allowed on non-motorized trails, even ones open to non-motorized bikes. 

Weather conditions can change rapidly in the Rocky Mountains. Be prepared for varying weather conditions.

Always check weather forecasts prior to your outing.
