Snowshoe / Winter Hike

Trails

There are many beautiful un-groomed trails as well as one groomed area rated for snowshoeing/winter hiking.  Trails groomed for snowmobiling are also perfect for snowshoeing.  The Wolf Creek Trailblazers groom many miles of trails.  Check their website for specifics. 

Need snowshoes and poles?  Pagosa Mountain Sports offers snowshoe rentals.  Pagosa Mountain Sports can provide maps and guidance on snowshoeing for your group.

** Please do not snowshoe/winter hike on trails groomed for skate/cross country skiing.  Snowshoes and hiking boots compress the trails in such a way that they are no longer compatible for skiing.   Check trail head signage to ensure trails are rated for snowshoeing/winter hiking.  Please be kind and make sure you are not using the groomed trails at a time when you are causing damage.  The groomers work very, very hard for all of us!  Please go early or late if temperatures during the day will make the snow too soft. **
