National Forest: Bike, Birding, Camp, Hike, Horse, Picnic, RV, Snow Sports, Walk
The Eagle Ranger District offers 82 trails that range from 200 yards to 13 miles in length. These trails offer a variety of opportunities for hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking and in the winter, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. While most of these are backcountry trails, the Glenwood Canyon Trail is a paved recreation path ideal for biking, in-line skating or walking through scenic Glenwood Canyon. Eight developed campgrounds (such as Gore Creek Campground) are located on the district, offering 100 campsites. These campgrounds offer varying levels of services. Backcountry and dispersed camping opportunities also exist on the Eagle District. Be sure to follow the backcountry and dispersed camping regulations and ‘Leave No Trace’ principles to ensure the next forest visitor an equal experience. Popular winter recreation activities include cross-country skiing and snowmobiling. The Tenth Mountain Hut System cuts across the southern end of the district and provides a hut-to-hut trail system for backcountry skiing. Great snowmobiling exists in many of the non-wilderness portions of the district.
