Trail Information


The Gould Mountain Road is one of the more enjoyable trails in the Colorado State Forest. The route offers great views of the nearby Continental Divide and North Michigan Valley. This road is a leisurely drive suitable for novice 4-wheelers. The route is open for vehicles, OHV's, hikers, mountain bikers, and horseback riders. The fall season is a visual treat with the Aspen trees changing to their vibrant gold hue. Elk and moose are abundant in the Colorado State Forest and seeing wildlife is common for visitors.

I visited the Colorado Stare Forest State Park to check on the road conditions for the season. The area has received some snow fall already this season and the Colorado DPW closed the roads on October 23 because of the snow. With the snowfall today and the snow fall expected over the next week, the roads in the park remain closed. I contacted the park's ranger who informed me that the trails were likely closed for the remainder of the season.

A trip to check on the status of the Colorado State Forest trails found that most have been closed for the season by the Colorado Division of Parks and Wildlife. In the past couple of days, nearly a foot of snow has fallen in Gould, CO.
