Limited services at the Monte Vista office

In advance of the move to our new office in Del Norte later this year, the Forest Headquarters in Monte Vista no longer provides products for sale. This includes firewood and transplant permits, annual passes, maps and interpretive books and guides. We also cannot process any type of payments except for by appointment. Please plan to visit one of the Ranger District offices listed below to obtain these products and services.

The Rio Grande National Forest is comprised of three ranger districts and forest headquarters located in south central Colorado.

Offices are open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. and closed on weekends and federal holidays.
