Friends of the Dillon Ranger District leverages the power of volunteers to make sure the National Forest lands enjoyed by millions of people each year are not negatively impacted by their popularity. By volunteering with FDRD, or supporting us by joing and becoming a member or making a financial contribution, you benefit the lands that make Summit County a world-class destination.
FDRD volunteers contribute thousands of hours maintaining and improving trails, planting trees, pulling invasive weeds, educating forest visitors and much more. We are one of the most active locally-based outdoor stewardship organizations in the country, and have been recognized as the US Forest Service’s Volunteer Program of the Year.
There are over 450 miles of trail in Summit County alone! We have compiled a list of the majority of popular day hikes in Summit County. Find out were to hike, camp, mountain bike, or fly fish.
FDRD's programs are provided as a public service, we rely on individual contributions to support our organization in ways that restricted grants do not. Without your generous gifts, we simply wouldn't be able to take care of this place we love. Thank you for supporting FDRD and your National Forest lands! Please consider helping the FDRD continue our forest steward efforts by becoming a member this year.
