State Forest State Park
State Forest State Park Review
Rugged peaks, thick forests, and burbling streams make up this 70,768-acre park. Here you can fish for trout, boat the azure alpine lakes, ride horseback, hike or mountain bike, and explore a few four-wheel-drive roads with views of the 12,000-foot Medicine Bow and Never Summer mountain ranges. Yurts and camping are available in winter, so you can explore the 70 miles of groomed snowmobiling trails or the 50 miles of groomed and signed cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails.

Never Summer Nordic. Hikers and mountain bikers (as well as snowshoers and backcountry or cross-country skiers) rent a yurt in the state park through Never Summer Nordic. The company also does hut-to-hut trips year-round and offers half-day, full-day, and overnight guided trips into the park. 247 County Rd. 41, 80480. 970/723–4070. www.neversummernordic.com.
