Directions to Spring Gulch
At the intersection of Main St. and Highway 133 (now a roundabout), turn or stay west on the road that bisects City Market and the 7-11 gas station. Simply stay on this road (County Rd. 108) for about six miles. The Trail System is located at the end of this road.
About Our Trails
Spring Gulch has something for every cross country skier – from greenhorn to old hand – in our 21+ kilometer (13.13 mile) trail system. Those just finding their feet on “skinny skis” will find Lazy Eight to be just the ticket. Rafter T leads those in search of a longer sojourn and spectacular views to Holdens or Finlandia. North Star brings you to a peaceful aspen grove. And, if excitement is your goal, Highball and Big Dipper are for you.
These trails have been designed by skiers for skiers and are regularly groomed. Just bring your lunch (no services are provided other than a restroom), a friend (except your dog – absolutely no dogs allowed, please), and a taste for fresh air and scenery.
Spring Gulch is truly one of the gems of the Roaring Fork Valley. The views are beautiful, the trails are fun and challenging, and everyone you see is smiling and enjoying themselves, young and old alike...It is a community resource that me and my family enjoy together."
-Sari Anderson, champion multi-sport athlete and mom
When people ask me about where my favorite trails in the world are, the answer is always the same...Spring Gulch. The pure flow of all of the trails is unreal, and winding through the sage brush and gamble oak trees on a bluebird Colorado day might be the greatest feeling in the world. Not only does it have some of the most fun trails in the world, but its character is local and laid back...everyone who skis is there to have fun, smile at everyone else they see, and just enjoy being outside in a beautiful place."
-Simi Hamilton, current US Ski Team athlete
