Columbine Motorized Roads and Trails

Current Columbine District Road Status Updates

Columbine Ranger District Motor Vehicle Use Map Available

The San Juan National Forest has issued a Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM) identifying roads and trails open to motorized travel on the Columbine Ranger District.  The Motor Vehicle Use Map is the legal document used to enforce travel rules on the Columbine Ranger District.  It does not identify non-motorized recreational routes. The map shows roads and trails where motorized users are allowed to ride on the Columbine Ranger District, and with what type of motor vehicles, and what time of year.

The Motor Vehicle Use Maps is available free of charge and will be re-issued periodically to include updates which will reflect any new travel decisions that have been made.  

Motor Vehicle Use Maps are a result of the U.S. Forest Service Travel Management Rule, a national effort begun in 2005 to address conflicts and confusion over motorized travel regulations on national forests and grasslands. The MVUM implements decisions that have been made through landscape-specific environmental analyses.

It is the responsibility of motorized travelers to be aware of the legal designated routes and stay on them to ensure responsible use and enjoyment of the national forest.
