Other Names

Gunnison National Forest, Paonia Ranger District, Erickson Springs Campground, Deep Creek, Williams Creek Reservoir, Buck Creek, Anthracite Creek, Munsey Creek

Last Known StatusOpen

Located in the Gunnison National Forest, this ATV trail is about 15 miles long and offers some technical riding plus scenic river, ponds and lake views. The trail is divided into a southern and northern section. ATVs and dirtbikes are permitted on the southern part but the northern section is reserved for non-motorized use. The trail eventually intersects with Deep Creek which can be extremely dangerous to cross during late spring due to fast moving and very cold river currents. Also note that the main entrance road (Forest Service Road #795) that leads to the trailhead is narrow and rugged and can be impassable during wet weather. For current road and river conditions contact the Paonia Ranger District before heading out.

Erickson Springs Campground is located a short distance away and offers 18 sites that can accommodate trailers up to 35 feet. There is no direct OHV access from this campground but it does have access to hiking trails and fishing holes. The campground generally opens for the season around late May through Labor Day Weekend.
