Visitor Information Services
Located at the front desk in local Forest Service and BLM offices, SJMA’s interpretive bookstores are your one-stop-shop for local public lands information. Whether you’re interested in hiking, mountain climbing, mountain biking, off-highway vehicle adventuring, hunting, fishing, or simply relaxing around a campfire in one of the many local campgrounds, we have numerous books, maps and brochures to help plan your visit.
Call us (970) 247-4874 or stop by the San Juan National Forest Headquarters in Durango or San Juan District Ranger Offices in Pagosa, Dolores or Bayfield. We are open Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 4:30pm.
In addition, we do our best to maintain up-to-date information on trail conditions, fire restrictions, the status of campgrounds and mountain roads, so let us help you plan your next trip!
Before you go, it is important to understand how to respect the San Juan Mountains by recreating responsibly in Colorado’s backcountry. Make sure to review forest and wilderness regulations, as well as Leave No Trace Principles. Let’s protect these wildly beautiful lands by treating them with the respect they deserve.
