About Our Trails

The trails at Spring Gulch have been designed by skiers, for skiers and are regularly groomed for both skate and classic. You can find the latest updates on grooming, conditions, and storm totals in the grooming report tab.

There's something for skiers of all ages and skill levels in the 28+ kilometer trail system. Those new to cross-country skiing will find Lazy Eight to be just the ticket. Those looking for a longer tour can wind their way up to Finlandia, graced with beautiful places to stop and catch your breath along the way.

Getting Here

At the intersection of Main St. and Highway 133 (now a roundabout), head west on the road that bisects ACE Hardware and the 7-11 gas station. Simply stay on this road (County Rd. 108) for about six miles. The Thompson Lot and main trailhead is located at the end of the plowed road.

"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 gambel 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...skiers are there to have fun, to smile at everyone else they see, and to just enjoy being outside in a beautiful place."


-Simi Hamilton, former US Ski Team athlete
