Golden Horseshoe Trail System

Wednesday, November 23, 2016

Alt Names

French Gulch Road, Summit County, Prospect Hill, Mineral Hill, Humbug Hill, Wire Patch Loop, Pelican Trail, Gold Run, Rock Island Road, Summit Gulch Road, Tiger Road, North Fork Swan River, Governor King, Golden Rule, Greenhorn Gulch, White River National Forest, Dillon Ranger District, Governor King Trail

Last Known StatusClosed For Season

This offroad area offers about 6,000 pristine acres of mountain trails to enjoy. A large portion of this trail system is actually wide and rugged 4x4 roads but there are a few single track trails set aside for dirt bike riders and non-motorized use. Most of the terrain is hardpacked with loose chunk rock but the single track trails consists mostly of loamy loose dirt.

The trail system has two staging areas - the northern staging area (Tiger Road) has plenty of room for large trailers while the southern staging area (French Gulch) has enough space for several compact trucks. Camping is permitted at both staging areas but there are no services so come prepared.

This trail system is actively maintained by the White River National Forest and Summit County Off Road Riders, so sure to say thanks for a job well done.
