Logger Days Festival

254 CO-149
South Fork, CO 81154

You are surrounded by more than 2 million acres of forest. This mountain land has produced lumber since the 1870s, when the first loggers arrived — and the trees are still growing — a slow dance of green growth. The Annual Logger Days continues a festive tradition of making work skills fun! Loggers and their friends compete in contests to gage their skills as lumberjacks:

Men, boys, and girls throw spinning hatchets at targets
Axes and saws drop tall poles to exact spots on the ground
Cheer along as noisy chain saws cut logs into precise pieces
Hold your breath as climbers scurry up a 60 foot pole
