Grand Lake Snowmobile Trails
The Grand Lake Area is transformed during the winter into a snowmobiler's paradise, commonly referred to as snowmobile capitol of Colorado. Many of the areas are more easily explored in the winter on a snowmobile. Grand Lake is one of the few towns that allows snowmobiles on town roads! The snowmobile trails in the Grand Lake area start at the western edge of Rocky Mountain National Park and winds through the Arapahoe National Forest. The trail ends at Milner Pass on Trail Ridge Road. The first snow can fall as early as September.
Whiskey Park is an excellent place for beginning snowmobilers. This open meadow is a great place to gain experience in controlling a snowmobile. Deep in backcountry, the Whiskey Park route connects with the Gravel Mountain route. This 11,768' mountain route leaves little to be desired for a great snowmobiling experience.
Be sure to also visit two of Colorado's 5 "great lakes," Lake Granby and Shadow Mountain Lake. Lake Granby is 7,250 surface acres with rainbow trout, Mackinaw trout and salmon making for excellent ice fishing in the winter. Shadow Mountain Lake has 1,346 surface acres with brown trout, rainbow trout and salmon for ice fishing.
