Big South Trail

OutAndBack • 5 mi • 1110 ft

The Big South Trail continues over 10 miles along the banks of the Cache Le Poudre River and ends in Rocky Mountain National Park at Poudre Lake near Milner Pass. This described trek extends only 2.5 miles to the bridge over May Creek. The flowing waters of the Poudre are the feature of this outing. Snowshoers should have little trouble on this trail, but it is not recommended for cross-country skiers due to its steep curving sections along the narrow trail.
