Frequent incidents on road to/from trail head. Trail is solid. Had a great time. That said, the access road to the trail is sketchy. Decending in the evening, traveling at 7 mph we encountered slippery conditions and our vehicle tumbled from FS 300 onto the road below. Fortunately everyone is safe and only have countered scrapes and bruises. Troopers and EMS crews told us stories of many incidents just like mine. I’d encourage you save this trail for bluebird days or only when conditions are dry. Side note: vehicle was a Mazda CX-9 AWD with m/s+ all season tires.

Super dusty trail with lots of construction activity. Trail is also not well marked.

The trails were well groomed and the views were spectacular. We found the start with some help from people on snow mobiles, but we were never sure where we were on the trail and decided to turn around rather than risk being out after dark. There were no snow mobiles on the actual trail.

We were excited to go hiking on this trail but could never find it! Very disappointed that it was so confusing to find, looked around for over an hour :( still not sure where you are supposed to go.

Nice trail. Sometimes hard to follow. Beautiful aspens and conifers. Some wild flowers, some spots pretty steep. Lots of cow poo...

Got lost on this trail right at the end. The trail has a few forks and it started sleeting and our phones died! We found our way to the resort, though, so we weren't too lost.

Beautiful wildflowers! Biting Flies were a nuisance the entire time. I recommend insect repellant to make it more enjoyable.

I did this trail at C.A.R.E.'s annual snowshoe race. It was really fun with the rolling hills and beautiful forest setting.

Well groomed trails, free parking, free snowshoeing & beautiful scenery. Parked at Sunlight Mountain Ski Resort they even have a free shuttle up to Guest Services & their lodge. Got a map at guest services & snowshoes both the Red & Green Loops. Beautiful views, cute rescue cabins along both routes. Enjoyed a good soak at Iron Mountain Hot Springs that evening!

Snowshoed this trail two days in a row. Lots of elevation change, but easy trails. Beautiful scenery and a very nice ski area near by.

Had a bit of trouble at first finding this trail. Located at the entrance of the Sunlight Mountain Resort parking lot. There's an upper and lower loop. Lower is all groomed. We did lower loop and then branched off on Sunshine Trail and wrapped around. Very fun snowshoeing trip and gorgeous views.

Excellent choice for our first snowshoeing experience. A magical place with the snow falling. With all the aspens I imagine it is gorgeous in the fall.
