Burn Pits

The Indian Mountain Burn Pit is for Forest Slash only.

The objective of the burn pit is to provide a place for disposal of forest wood slash.  It serves to encourage thinning of trees around structures and removal of dead, down, or overcrowded trees to promote wildfire management.  The burn pit experiences resounding success with hundreds of truckloads of forest slash being safely disposed each year.


The burn pit is part of a suite of facilities maintained by the Indian Mountain Metropolitan District (IMMD).  It’s located on their property near the RV Storage Lot and Pasture Golf off Albino Road.  IMMD administers the pit, and the Jefferson-Como Fire Protection District (JCFPD) periodically burns the slash during winter months when conditions are deemed safe for a controlled burn.  Please read this brief concerning smoke from these operations.

Volunteers man the Burn Pit during summer months.  This link will take you to the IMMD Burn Pit Page where information regarding operating dates, volunteer opportunities, and usage regulations are posted.
