Trails for all categories of riders are plentiful in Mineral County. Join the Snow Country Explorers Club, go on a guided adventure with Lake City Auto & Sports Center, or take a workshop from the crew at Mountain Skillz. Mineral County’s vast expanse of National Forest and state recreation areas support more than 85 miles of groomed trails. Trails connect Creede, Lake City, and South Fork. This area of Colorado is known to have what many consider perfect riding conditions.

ALWAYS check avalanche conditions first (, then go have a blast in the snow!


Know Before You Go

  • Never go alone.
  • Tell Someone:  Where you’re going  When you’ll be back
  • Buy a Search & Rescue Card ($3 online). The card helps reimburse local SAR team’s expenses for search and rescue missions
  • Check the Weather and for Avalanche Danger
  • Ask at the Visitor Center for grooming reports and conditions on area trails

Local Tips

  • Avoid Wolf Creek Ski Area boundaries (it’s a pretty steep fine!)
  • Altitude WILL effect your machine AND you! Tune up your sled - ask local shops for advice and take a few test runs. And for your own health, double your water intake, avoid caffeine and alcohol, and lay low the first day or two
  • We really do have a lot of avalanche-prone country here, and you’re a long way from Search & Rescue or EMTs. Make sure you have avalanche training and safety equipment
  • Local business, Mountain Skillz, offers a variety of snowmobiling workshops and avalanche/safety courses.

Groomed Trails

Share the Trail! Many area trails are groomed for Snowmobile and X-Country Ski access by volunteers. Check with the Snow Country Exporers for latest grooming reports.
