  • Smoking, except within an enclosed vehicle or building, a developed recreation site, or while stopped in an area at least three feet in diameter that is barren or cleared of all flammable materials.

The following acts are always prohibited on federally managed lands:

  • The use of fireworks and other incendiary devices on public lands in Colorado.
  • Leaving fires unattended or unextinguished.
