Trail Overview
Fourmile Area
Very fun area for ATVs, UTVs, and dirt bikes. The northwest corner is a spider web of roads that are great for exploring. There are options for beautiful dispersed campsites with incredible views of the Collegiate Peaks. Avoid the private Goddard Ranch. Most of the area is closed December to April for snow.
History
As you enter the area on F.S. 315, you’ll see signs for the Midland Bike Trail on the left. This bike route follows an old railroad grade of the Colorado Midland R.R. that was active from 1887 to 1918. The railroad ran from Colorado Springs to New Castle on the Western Slope. New Castle produced coal and limestone, which was shipped to major mining centers, including Leadville. The railroad also carried passengers to Glenwood Hot Springs.
Getting There
From Hwy. 24/285, at a point 5.5 miles east of Hwy. 24, turn north on F.S. Road 315, marked with a blue sign. Alternate entry point, on F.S. 311 at Trout Creek Pass, is located between mile markers 225 and 226. Look for large San Isabel National Forest sign.
