Hiking, Running & Snowshoeing

Muddy River / BLM Areas

The Bureau of Land Management's Kremmling field office oversees the vast area adjacent to Kremmling's northern boundary. Public trails can be accessed via parking areas on Hwy 22 just past the hockey arena, and on the north side of Hwy 40 just to the west of Kremmling. Pedestrian only trails are marked for use by hikers, bikers, while many of the trails are for use by motorized vehicles. The trails range in difficulty from easy to very difficult with steep climbs. Snowshoes are recommended in winter months.  

Wolford Reservoir Recreation Area

Wolford Reservoir is located six miles west of Kremmling on Hwy 40. There are two entrances to the recreation areas: The first has parking and picnic pagodas and is the trailhead for many area trails. The second leads to the campgrounds and boat dock.

Gore Canyon Trail

This scenic trail is at the Pumphouse Recreation Area, accessed via Trough Road (Colorado SH 1) just south of Kremmling. It's a relatively easy trail that runs alongside the Colorado River.

Rabbit Ears Recreation Area

The west side of Rabbit Ears pass is designated with blue diamonds for Nordic skiers and snowshoers only. Visitors are encouraged to study this map ahead of visiting in order to avoid conflicts.
