Heber-Kamas Ranger District

The Heber-Kamas Ranger District is located along the southwestern edge of the Uinta Mountains and the eastern side of the Wasatch Mountains. Increased visitor use, coupled with the ever reduced Forest Service budget, have limited the District’s ability to keep up with sign inventory and maintenance. As a result visitors have had difficulties navigating and are more likely to go off-trail and venture down user-created routes. The Forest Service has missed opportunities to educate the public on State and Federal rules and regulations, and stewardship principles such as Tread Lightly, and Leave No Trace.
