Significance: The Horseshoe Ranger Station is significant on a local, and possibly state level, because it was one of the first ranger stations built and used on the Arapaho National Forest. The site, dating from about 1909, represents a classic ranger station and is one of the last such stations in Colorado. However, it is not the only forest guard station eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. The Hog Park Ranger Station, located on the Routt National Forest, is listed in the National Register and also represents an early Forest Service station.
