If you have a great memory of your time in Summit County, chances are it has something to do with National Forest lands. The Dillon Ranger District (DRD) of the White River National Forest follows the exact border of Summit County, and includes 75% of the land in the county. At 487 square miles, the acreage of public lands managed by the DRD is roughly equivalent to Teton National Park.
These various recreational opportunities provided by our local National Forest lands are often the main reason residents live here and guests visit here. Whether you enjoy using your feet, riding something with wheels or sliding on snow, there are no shortage of ways to get out and enjoy this unique area.
365 days of recreation + over 4.5 million visitors a year = need for year-round care of this amazing place!
