Summer Camps & Programs

Hiking, Biking and Dog-friendly TrailsHiking, Biking & Dog-friendly Trails

With and estimated total of 15 miles of trails we have something for everyone to enjoy! (For summer use only).

Grand Lake Metropolitan Recreation District has developed scenic mountain biking and hiking trails on the recreation district land. There are a variety of distances and difficulty levels, from short loops to a 6-mile round-trip hike/bike, many dog-friendly options, and a picnic area overlooking a beautiful wetland. We have wildlife - Beware of wildlife.

: Wander through forested land or venture down to the North Fork of the Colorado River. The Colorado River Trail is the main trail on our system with several small connecting trails (the Colorado River Trail is 5.2 miles round-trip).

Bikers: Ride the single track trails through fun and exciting terrain, with vistas of the three lakes, Colorado River, and wetlands with wild flowers.

Trail System Updates for 2011
HIKING: Our trails are open and we have all levels of hiking available. The system features everything from a short and scenic trail that is ½ a mile long, to a 5-mile round trip hike to the Colorado River.

MOUNTAIN BIKING: With some work required to re-route the trails around wet areas, we are now also open to mountain bikers.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO BIKERS : Our trail system has been mountain bike rated as Intermediate to Advanced. We recommend beginner bike riders do not attempt this trail system.

Our improvement plans for the summer include placing more picnic tables throughout the trail system, improving the existing trails, building a connector trail to the Janice’s Jaunt trail, building a trail on the highest point near the Colorado River which will allow a nice overlook over the golf course and our trail systems.

September Update: The single track trail to the Colorado River is now complete thanks to the assistance of a few volunteers. Our trails are now a true single-track hiking and biking trail system leading to the Colorado River in addition to the many other trails that wind around our 400 acres. We have additional plans for the future with many more trails to come on the land that has not yet been utilized.

We have wildlife - Beware of wildlife.

Take U.S. Hwy 34 North toward Rocky Mountain National Park and Grand Lake. Go past the entrance to the town of Grand Lake, approx. 1/4 mile, turn
