Corral Creek Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"If you want to get a head start on the cross-country skiing or snowshoeing season, this is a great trail because it is in one of the areas that gets lots of snow early.

Here you can enjoy the backcountry without actually being too far from the city. The Corral Creek Trail is on the east side of I-70, and it’s a sweet and relatively easy alternative to the Shrine Pass Trail to the west, which gets so much snowmobile traffic. As with Shrine Pass and Commando Run, skiing in Corral Creek requires a day-use fee."
