The Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests and Pawnee National Grassland, (USFS)

Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests and Pawnee National Grasslands include 1.5 million acres in the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains in north central Colorado, extending north to the Wyoming border, south to Mount Evans and west across the continental divide. Roosevelt National Forest is one of the oldest national forests in the country and originally began as part of the Medicine Bow Forest Reserve in 1897, but was renamed in 1932 to honor president Roosevelt. Arapaho National Forest was established in 1908 by president Theodore Roosevelt. The Pawnee National Grassland was designated in 1960. Niwot Ridge is a part of the Roosevelt National Forest.
