Getting There

Easy trail on gentle terrain along highway 67, good warm up snowshoe path From the parking lot go through the access gate on the South end of the parking lot. Follow it east on a paved path for a short distance. After about 50 yards there will be a trail on the left that is fairly well worn. Take this path. Along the way there are several little paths leading off to either side, but stay on the main path heading North. After about a mile into the trail it joins up with a forest service access road (barely used anymore). Follow this road to the gate that will lead you back to the paved path next to highway 67. This is Centennial trail. Turn left and head back South on Centennial trail until you reach the parking lot once again. This trail is not very exciting, but would provide a good trail to get used to snowshoeing, since you can easily bail out and get on Centennial trail at any time. It stays fairly close to highway 67 as well so there is always a bit of road noise. Fortunately Highway 67 isn't too busy of a highway yet.

Head North from Woodland Park on Highway 67 for 4 miles. After coming over the crest of a hill you will see the sign for Red Rocks Group camping area on the right side. Just after this turn is a turnout with a couple of picnic tables. Park in this small area.

This is a nice stroll through an evergreen and aspen forest on the Red Rocks trail and a walk on an asphalt bike path on the Centennial trail along side Hwy 67.

On the way back, I’d recommend staying on the trail rather than getting on the Centennial Trail as there’s a nice stretch through young aspen. Long Gulch is a gentle trail, in pines and/or aspen most of the way. The traffic on 67 repeatedly pulls a person out of a trail trance. That’s the price for a trail that is this accessible. To paraphrase legendary Gazette sports copy editor Ray Evans: It’s the type of trail people who like this type of trail would like.

First to Review

This is a decent walk, long enough for me to convince my five year old she isn't ready for backpacking, but not difficult at all. The trail ends before you think you've begun, and its close to the highway. We had fun, but it wasn't a trail I'd take my husband on.
