Snow shoeing

Anyone recommend any good snowshoe trails near Gunnison? May head out that way this weekend from Colorado Springs.. Looking for trails in about 6 miles of length or less..... Thanks

I'm thinking there would be a lot more terrain available for snowshoeing in Gunnison/Crested Butte (or Buena Vista) than there would be in Alamosa, if you are trying to decide between the two locations for your weekend.

Ooh, could you make it in time for the Moonlight Snowshoe Tour on the 18th?

That would be fun.

Hartman Rocks is very near Gunnison. Here's contact info for current conditions, as my local contact :( no longer lives there to give me updates. blm.gov/co/…hartmaninfo.html

Here are some longer trails but you could always go "out and back" as far as you wanted:

I'm sure you could get info and maps from the Crested Butte Nordic Center if they're all out skiing and snowshoeing and don't happen to see your post, lol. http://www.cbnordic.org/
