Colorado Trail (Segment 8) Professional Reviews and Guides
"In summer 2002, volunteer crews from the Colorado Trail Foundation completed a reroute of the Colorado Trail where it traverses above Copper Mountain Resort. The new trail crosses several ski runs, travels under chairlifts, drops near the Village at Copper, then winds down to meet the older part of the Colorado Trail near the confluence of Jacque Creek and Guller Creek. Various wildflowers and remnants of the old days of mining and logging mix with today ’s white gold (snow riding)along this trail. For Colorado Trail aficionados, hikers on the old section walked on the road from Wheeler Flats trailhead through Copper Mountain then along the paved recreational path to a bridge over Tenmile Creek. From there the trail followed Guller Creek to its headwaters and east to Searle Pass. The USFS and Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado (VOC)then revegetated the old trail from Jacque Creek down (east)to the paved recreational path. This hike follows the new section of the Colorado Trail to Guller Creek."
