Piedra River Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Because of water rights issues in the Piedra River watershed this area missed being declared a Wilderness Area in the 1993 Colorado Wilderness Act. Fortunately, however, because of its vast expanse of oldgrowth forest it was decided to make it a “Special Management Area”.

Consequently, the virgin forest is now protected against future logging and road building activities, and its 62,550-acre size makes it the largest such forest preserve in the state."
