Burn Loop (Trail D) is a loop trail connected to Elmer Canyon (Trail C) which goes down the north side of the hill to a meadow which usually has deep snow. The meadow is a favorite with short hills for skiing & snowboarding.
This meadow has varying terrain to make it fun for all riders experience levels.
Elmer Canyon (Trail C) will come out at the Gardner Junction /AKA 4 Corners
& The Greenhorn Road (Trail E) .
This is the intersection of
Ophir Creek-Trail A,
Elmer Canyon- Trail C,
Greenhorn Road- Trail E
Greenhorn Road (Trail E) follows a 16 mile ridge line with a 2 to 5 mile width. TRAILS: F, G, I, J, K, L, M and N loop off the main Trail E. Trail E runs 16 miles from the Gardner Jct. to the south and ends at Greenhorn Mountain.
The Beaver Creek Trail (Trail F) is a long trail that contains timber riding with many meadows.
The north section has some very scenic meadows which hold deep snow & many play areas.
This trail is connected on both ends to Greenhorn Road (Trail E).
The Beaver Creek Trail (Trail F) coming off onto Greenhorn Road (Trail E)
The middle section is a large meadow near “Meadow Divide” that offers more play areas & open riding, but be careful of rocks in the meadow.
The Sangre Overlook Trail offers a great view of the Wet Mountain Valley &
The Sangre de Cristo Mountains, hence the name. The ridge on the south end holds snow on the east side & is a favorite play area.
The Sangre Overlook (Trail G)
on the north end goes through the woods by an old broken down log cabin.
This trail connects to Greenhorn Road
(Trail E) on both ends.
The entrance on the south end of Pole Creek (Trail I) is a larger meadow that descends into the timber to a middle meadow waiting to be carved up! The meadows to the east, however, hold more snow, but are covered with willows, so be careful
The trail on the north end goes through the timber & connects back to Greenhorn Road (Trail E).
The south end of Pole Creek is also the location for the ATV Trail Head & is surrounded by large rocks. This snowmobile loop trail branches off the ATV trail & uses meadows & timber cuts to the north end.
Unlike its name, the trail is not prone to snow slides / avalanches. The north end of the trail connects to the Greenhorn Road (Trail E) at the 19th mile marker and proceeds through a large meadow. This meadow is often windblown and contains many rocks so stay on the trail. The trail cuts through timber and meadows which can hold snow drifts and deep snow. Several meadows along this trail open up to more play areas.
The south end has a large meadow where some areas maybe windblown and
some rocks may exist.
Snowslide (Trail J) connecting back onto Greenhorn Road (Trail E)
The Mammoth Gulch trail is a nice short cut through the timber coming in from the north, off of the Ophir Creek Trail (Trail A).
At one time, this was a year-round sawmill.
Going to the south, through another small meadow, an old logging road reconnects to Ophir Creek (Trail A) close to the junction of Greenhorn Road (Trail E) and Elmer Canyon (Trail C).
The Crossover Trail (Trail L) is a short cut from the long Beaver Creek Trail (Trail F) to Greenhorn Road (Trail E) or visa-versa.
It primarily goes along an old logging road through light timber.
Coming in from the south, this trail goes through heavy timber on the north side of the mountain ridge. It usually has deep snow and has some views of the eastern plains and the city of Pueblo.

This trail does not have any meadows on it.
It goes through the timber & loops off from the middle section of North Peak (Trail M), then takes you back to Greenhorn Road

1922 Though there were plenty of snow-centric vehicles created by the beginning of the 1920s, the first vehicle which could rightfully be called a snowmobile was invented in 1922. A creation of J. Armand Bombardier, this vehicle possessed the ability to glide over snow.
