It also takes in the White River National Forest around Marble which extends from Schofield Pass North to the Pitkin County line. It encompasses unincorporated areas of the county within this region however is complicated by the fact that the Gunnison National Forest and BLM are not in restrictions. However, the White River National Forest is in stage two restriction.
