Trail Running in Grand County

Trail Running In Grand County 

Grand County has some of the best trail, mountain, and forest road running in Colorado. There are over 600 miles of quiet dirt forest roads, miles and miles of single-track, and plenty of alpine peaks to run. I can't believe that I've neglected this amazing location for so many years. The wildlife is some of the best in the state, the trails are empty, and the variety and elevations are perfect. We have been getting in plenty of miles this spring between 8,000 and 12,000 feet - every other day we hit up a new thing to run. And the running is really perfect! Here are some shots of the flowers encountered on every trail run we do. Such a great place!
