Friends of Browns Canyon and our partners are working to protect Browns Canyon as Wilderness, or as another federal conservation designation like a National Monument. This will permanently protect the area and ensure that it will remain open to hunting, fishing, and whitewater rafting, and preserve Colorado’s outdoor legacy for future generations. This map shows proposed boundaries.

Four-Mile Area, Browns Canyon and Salida Mountain Trails
The following map shows the extensive network of motorized routes from the Four-Mile recreation area just north of the proposed Browns Canyon area as well as the mountain bike routes to the south. This map provides a visualization for the need to set aside one small area for wildlife habitat and quiet use recreationists such as horseback riders and hikers.
