Rifle River Recreation Area is a wilderness located within the AuSable State Forest and provides a variety of recreational opportunities. Great park for wildlife watching, hiking, fishing and hunting.
A very nice trail/loop. The terrain is mostly flat other than the northern part of the trail that has about a .75 mile climb followed by a equal length sweet downhill run. There is one other hilly section near the front. This trail goes through a variety of scenery - meadows, swamps, stream crossings, and so much more. Plus there are many lakes as well. Once you get out of the hills you can hammer on the trail. Well worth the trip.
