Sanford Trail to Timberline Trail is a 18.6 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located in the state of CO that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as difficult. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible from May until September.
Great loop for a long run with friends!! It was rocky, washed out and steep as the trail winds its way through the trees. There were three small creek crossings with some mud at other points along the way. It was very challenging but the view overlooking Taylor Park to the North/Northwest and Mirror Lake to the Southeast makes it worth it! We started at 7am and it took us about 2 hours and 40 minutes to run it. We brought water and energy gel for the top before taking the trail back that goes toward Mirror Lake and CR 267. Afterwards we had breakfast at Nugget Cafe that is next to the Taylor Park Trading Post!
