Uncompahgre National Forest Map (Plateau Division) - Waterproof
The Uncompahgre Plateau, located in western Colorado, was established as part of the Uncompahgre Forest Reserve by President Theodore Roosevelt's proclamation of June 14, 1905. "Uncompahgre" is a Ute work describing "Rocks that make Water Red." The Plateau itself is a long, narrow geologic uplift formation bordered on the east by the wide valleys of the Gunnison and Uncompahgre rivers and on the west by the narrow gorges of the Dolores and San Miguel rivers. Starting from an elevation of about 4600 feet, it rises to just under 10,000 feet.
The map also features descriptions and images of the Uncompahgre Plateau, archaeological and historical heritage protection, hunting, Leave No Trace skills and ethics, Wilderness Study Areas and Special Management Areas, black bear and mountain lion cautions, scenic byways, weed free closures, how landform representations have been enhanced by aerial photography, and travel management rules, regulations, definitions, and signs.
Also included are a complete legend, index to USGS 7.5' topographic maps, recreation site index, and contact information for National Forest offices, Bureau of Land Management offices, and State of Colorado offices.
