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.

Great area with well maintained trail. Still a little early in the year as the ground is damp in a couple of places but worth the hike anyhow.

Great trails, very well marked and easy to follow. plenty of hills for a great workout. Beautiful Park.

Very nice and easy trail. Well maintained and marked. Perfect for kids. Some interpretive signs and board walks made it more interesting.

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.
