Seven miles west of town you’ll find the Spring Gulch Nordic Trail System. Visiting and local Nordic enthusiasts find its 12 miles of tracked trails ideal. The trail system is maintained and operated by the Mount Sopris Nordic Council, a community-based non-profit organization. No fees are charged for the use of these trails, but membership in the Mount Sopris Nordic Council is encouraged. These tracks are for cross-country skiers only and no dogs are allowed. All levels of skiers can find trails in this system that will suit their abilities.
