Start Preamble


Leadville Ranger District, San Isabel National Forest, Rocky Mountain Region, Forest Service.

Authority: The Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act, as part of the December 8, 2005, Consolidated Appropriations Act (Pub. L. 108-447).

Notice: Two additional expanded amenity recreation fee sites are proposed to the Forest Service Historic Cabin Rental Program.


The Pike and San Isabel National Forests have an active cabin rental program that has been in operation since 2001 under the Recreation Fee Demonstration Authority. Four cabins have been available to the public for overnight rental since the inception of this program. The original intent of this program was to expand the number of rental opportunities using the revenue from the program. Two additional sites, the Dawson Cabin and Crescent Mining Camp, are now ready to be added to the program. These cabins would fall under Category 3.C, Expanded Amenity Recreation Sites and Services. Without the authority to charge a fee for these facilities the Forest Service would not be able to make them available to the public.


Transition is effective six months from publication of this Federal Register and concurrence by the appropriate Resource Advisory Committee.
