Before you plan a trip to
the Sylamore Area call the Ranger Station to ask if there are any closed areas you plan to
visit. This is an active forest under active management, which means logging activity,
controlled burns, or other activities may not make a particular area safe.
You can also request maps of the horse
trails, mountain bike trails, and other publications. Staff will also answer
questions about regulations enforced within their jurisdiction.
For hunting and fishing questions you'll need
Game & Fish Commission
