Super Trail

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.

Nice walking trails, no special equipment needed. I went in the winter and trail was easy to walk and well maintained. For all ages.

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.

I rode this trail several times this November. I've also done it other years. Always great views of the Rockies. It runs between Winter Park and Fraser. If you bring a backpack you can do some shopping at the grocery store (Safeway) and return to your housing after the ride.

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 trail is awesome! Easy to push a stroller and you can get just about anywhere in town from the trail. It follows the Fraser River to the grocery store, shops, snacks, handy and pretty if you just want to jog, walk the dog, or take a family walk.

This was a nice trail to take a short hike on our first day. It allowed us to adjust to the altitude before taking on more aggressive trails. Other reviewers have commented on the road noise, but I don't recall that it was an issue; it was a nice place for our first hike in the area!

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. Thus, you are not completely isolated or free from the world.

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 without driving too far into the backcountry. Would like to see more half mile markers... More 

Thank Lisa C
