Whiskey Creek Trail – Colorado

Summer is slowly giving in to fall here in Northern Colorado. Nights are getting colder and pretty soon the mountains will turn gold. Over the past week I’ve been up in the high country exploring a 10.4 mile trail in Eagle County popular with trail runners and mountain bikers.

The Whiskey Creek Trail meets up with the Line Shack Trail at the top of a ridge with an old cabin and absolutely killer views of the Gore Range.

Travelers along the Whiskey Creek Trail get to explore dense stands of mature aspens and mixed conifers as well as multiple sun-drenched high alpine meadows like this one just west of the Line Shack cabin.
