Plan visits ahead of time.
Many of our most popular places require a reservation or a day pass be purchased online in advance. Visit Recreation.gov
to find out how to reserve a pass or book a campsite. Use other official sources like the USFS
(Colorado trail map app) and COTrip.org
(road conditions) to plan your trip and make yourself aware of current conditions/requirements. Look at the weather forecast as well as trail and trailhead information. Tell people where you’re going.
