Ant Hills WSA

The remote Ant Hills WSA consists of hills and valleys on the southern slopes of Douglas Mountain, which trend southward into Dinosaur National Monument and the Yampa River. The Ant Hills consist of several hills rising 400 to 500 feet above the draws in the southeastern part of the WSA. The area is an extension of the landforms and upper end of drainages found in Dinosaur National Monument. There are no developed recreation sites in the Douglas Mountain area, but the area offers opportunities for visitors to enjoy deer and elk hunting, camping, sightseeing, hiking, backpacking and horseback riding. Motorized and mechanized vehicle travel is limited to existing roads and trails within these WSAs. Vegetation consists mainly of ponderosa pine, pinyon-juniper woodlands, sagebrush, and native grass communities. Fauna includes mule deer, elk, raptors and other birds, and various small mammals and reptiles.
