    I'll be heading to the mountains of Colorado next week, and plan to camp in a National Forest campground area for several days, with hikes into a designated Wilderness area. Anybody know what the rules might be that would govern open carry? Thanks in advance.

    IIRC, you can open carry on any state land. National Parks are different, but a National Forest isn't necessarily a National Park.

    Legal and preempted by state law except in Denver. Open carry in your vehicle is legal in Denver, but not outside your vehicle.

    National Forests and Wilderness areas are legal. National Parks are NOT until February 2010.

    If the opencarry.org website comes up, click MAPS, Open Carry, then Colorado to get a summary.

    Open carry is also prohibited in Breckenridge last I checked.

    Give this page a look. Wouldn't hurt to print it and read over it a few times.

    Oddly enough, all of my best Kansan buddies were just out here last week. I was open carrying as we hiked and camped in the National Forests. :)

    It isn't.....period. The two are completely different animals controlled by two completely different agencies with two completely different sets of rules.

    Those dang, arbitrary adverbs.

    Mainsail...

    My bad. I didn't realize I was unintentionally inferring that there might be some overlap there. Obviously not.
