Colorado Roadless Areas (Photo Slideshow)

The Colorado Roadless Project is about creating awareness of the need to protect the 4.2 million acres of Colorado’s National Forest lands designated as Roadless and the world-class mountain biking, hiking, climbing, paddling, skiing and other recreational opportunities these lands provide.

Nat and Rachael Lopes documented Roadless Areas across Colorado in some of the most epic backcountry in the nation. Their articles, photos and videos help to better understand why the continued protection of these areas is good for the people, the economy of Colorado, and the environment in Colorado and critical to preserving the Colorado way of life.
