The trail is a good paved trail from the town of Winter Park to the ski area. It goes through the woods and beside the river. It is an easy trail and about 5 miles round trip.

We did a last minute hike/trail and this was perfectly paved for us and we didn't get lost. This trail runs 20 miles along all the way to Grandby. It was perfect for a morning walk.

This trail is a slight downhill from Winter Park to Fraser. Mostly level and easy walking or bike riding. You might see a moose or beaver along the trail. The Fraser river is well known for excellent fly fishing.

This was a well cared for, paved trail that takes you on a leisurely walk that you can end when you want. It does take you through some wooded areas but you will travel on the street, through neighborhoods, where you can hear the traffic....More

Nice, short trail next to the river. Perfect choice with small kids, can use their bikes. It is around 2 miles, so a quite short program. The trail ends at a bigger lake next to Fraser

A nice easy trail that follows part of the Fraser River between Fraser and Winter Park. My only complaint is the road noise for Hwy 40, but that can't be helped. Perfect place to take dogs, ride your bike, or just to enjoy the outdoors...More
