This new trail system offers over 250 miles of marked trails with 16 interconnecting loops that wind through a mix of county, Forest Service and BLM land. The trail system has numerous access points including several trailheads conveniently located in the town of Meeker.

The North Fork Campground provides access to the northern half of the trail system but is very popular and reservations are recommended which can be made by calling (877) 444-6777. Meadow Lake and Meadow Ridge Campgrounds are located at the southern part of the trail system.

Most of the trails usually open around late May but some sections reopen in mid June due to elk calving. Exact dates may vary so be sure to check with the Forest Service before heading out.
