Friends of the Dillon Ranger District offers free snowshoe tours

Friends of the Dillon Ranger District, the nonprofit organization supporting the local White River National Forest ranger station, will host three winter snowshoe hikes, the first of which takes place on Wednesday, Feb. 22.

Each leisurely paced, naturalist-led tour will happen within the Dillon Ranger District, and the treks are free and open to the public. Spots are limited, though, so registration is requested ahead of time to offer an enjoyable experience for all participants, as well as ensure there are enough snowshoes available for those attending.

Once signed up, interested individuals will receive information via email on specific trail location and meeting time three days prior to the hike. This provides organizers the flexibility to choose a site based on current snow and weather conditions. Participants should plan for trips lasting three-to-four hours, and all tours will occur on beginner-friendly trails in the county.

The next two FDRD hikes will take place on Friday, March 17, and Saturday, April 8. For more information or to register, visit, or call (970) 262-3449.
