Description

Trail #1160

This trail is within an area closure between 11/15-5/15 for wildlife protection. Being at a lower elevation this trail is usable earlier in the spring for walking, running, hiking and biking. Many use this trail with FDR 60, Buffalo Pass Road, to complete a mountain bike loop. Be alert for heavy mountain biking! This is an easy trail and it is enjoyed by many.

The Spring Creek Trail begins on a dirt road on the edge of town, following Spring Creek upstream. Just up the trail the user will encounter an educational pavilion and two small city reservoirs. The trail becomes a 4WD road and splits further up; taking the trail on your right begins the 1160 trail. From the Spring Creek Road to the Forest Boundary you will travel 2.1 miles. Once you've entered the Routt National Forest, the trail winds 1.5 miles up to the Dry Lake Campground on the Buffalo Pass Road, FDR 60.
