Ranger Stations offer good maps, directions, and information on current travel conditions. Most national forest campgrounds are small with limited services and supplies are often found only in small communities many miles away. Planning in advance for visits to the remote segments of the trail is advised.

Historical and archeological sites are irreplaceable. Federal Law protects them. Any willful damage or collecting of artifacts is punishable by fine or jail time.

Exploring National Forests and Grasslands may involve driving on primitive, single-lane roads. Some may have steep drop-offs or reach elevations that are snow-free only from around June until October. Inquire locally if there are any restrictions and always drive carefully.
