If you are looking for cheap firewood, here is your answer. Firewood permits are now available south of Red Feather Lakes along sections of the Manhattan Road or Larimer County Road #69. You need to be prepared to cut your own wood.


Cost for firewood permits is $20 a cord and must be used within three weeks of purchase. A cord is approximately 4’ by 4’ by 8’ or two pickup loads full.

Where to Get Your Permit

Visitors must purchase permits that include a map at the Visitor Information Center located at 2150 Centre Ave., Building E, before heading up. The Information Center is open Monday-Tuesday and Thursday-Friday 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  (closed Wednesdays). It is always a good idea to call ahead at 970-295-6770 to ensure you can purchase your permit.

Permits will be sold as conditions allow. The road is gravel; however, the area may still receive snow this spring. Please use extreme caution when driving on Forest Service Roads and consider recent weather conditions in the mountains.
