Trail Overview
Trough Trail
If crawling over boulders through a tight rugged canyon is your thing, you'll love Trough Trail. People often take this trail in combination with Sidewinder for a longer adventure. Get there on a beautiful 20-mile drive along the Colorado River from Kremmling. No seasonal closures.
This trail was built in 2002 with the approval of the Kremmling BLM Field Office. Kremmling’s local 4x4 club, the Mountain Metal Mashers, worked together with Renegade Off Road, Kremmling’s local 4WD shop, to build the trail. The effort required moving large boulders and clearing brush. Boulders are periodically moved to keep the trail difficult.
Getting There
From Kremmling: Head south 2.3 miles on Highway 9. Turn right on Trough Road, County Road 1. Continue south on this road about 21 miles. After crossing bridge over Colorado River, turn right on small road after railroad tracks. From I-70: Head north about 15 miles from Wolcott, Exit 157, on paved Highway 131. Bear right at State Bridge on Trough Road, C.R. 1, and go about 3.5 miles to trail on left before bridge over Colorado River.
