TRAIL NAME STATUS DESCRIPTION

Long Trail OPEN …Open from 5 Points Intersection to the Base Area. Access 5 Points using the service road from the top.
Upper Arapaho
(biking only)
CLOSED A steeper descent with quick, dry surfaces for serious riders and racers-in-training. This trail is closed to hikers.
Upper Roof of the Rockies CLOSED A healthy climb crossing upper sections of the Mary Jane ski trail, then on to a beautifully wooded, winding trail. This trail will then intersect with the Lower Roof trail.
Lower Roof of the Rockies CLOSED A moderate single-track trail with very few hills to negotiate — take this trail out to Fantasy Meadow.
Gunbarrel CLOSED A short access road connecting Lower Roof of the Rockies and the Long Trail. Take time to enjoy the view from the top of Pioneer Express lift.
Fantasy Meadow CLOSED A beautiful loop with views of Vasquez cirque and colorful wildflowers. A nice detour from Lower Roof.
Mountain Goat CLOSED Our most technical, challenging trail — experts only! Killer singletrack with speed.
Lonesome Whistle OPEN An old jeep road with large water bars and steep descents. Fast and fun- stay in control
Arapahoe OPEN Winding through the trees is a great way to add an extra “loop” to your Long Trail experience. Look for this trailhead just north of the five-points intersection.
Lower Arapahoe OPEN … FULL LENGTH from LITTLE VASQUEZ ROAD to UPPER CHEROKEE INTERSECTION
Upper Cherokee OPEN … FULL LENGTH to TUNNEL HILL. Lower Cherokee is also open below T. HILL
Sorenson Park Loop CLOSED 1/4-mile practice loop for beginners and students in mountain bike clinics. A great place to get started.
