Jug Mountain Ranch Winter Trail Tour

NORDIC TRAIL RECOMMENDATIONS:

BUDDY’S LOOP (1.2 km) and HONEYMOON HOLLOW LOOP (3 km)

Great for beginner skiers looking for a scenic loop. For a shorter route, head out on Buddy’s Loop just north of the Nordic Center and looping around the Driving Range. If you finish the loop and are still wanting more, try Honeymoon Hollow Loop. Just a bit longer at 3km, but smooth flat terrain in the meadows.

FRANKY’S TO UPPER HOOT LOOP (9 km)

A scenic loop covering meadow and mountain terrain. Head out from the Nordic Center on Honeymoon Hollow South then turn onto Franky’s. From here you can go left or right, but both take you to Mainline. Turn left on Mainline and follow up to Upper Hoot. Follow to Harper’s Loop and Harper’s Cutoff then finish the loop by taking Honeymoon Hollow North back to the Nordic Center.

RESERVOIR LOOP (11 km)

Worth the effort if you are ready to climb! To start your loop, head north from the Nordic Center on Honeymoon Hollow North. Ski to the bottom of Gully where you will hit Mainline. We recommend the southern route up to the reservoir along South Boundary. This route will meet with Mainline at Murphy’s Junction – take Mainline to one of three skiing options: Give A Dam, South Reservoir Loop, or Jug View Loop. Head back to the Nordic Center by taking Mainline all the way down the mountain, cutting back across Gully and taking Honeymoon Hollow back to your car!

FAT BIKE TRAIL RECOMMENDATIONS

NORTH ELK LOOP (1 mile)/ SOUTH ELK LOLLYPOP (1.8 miles) 

The wide flowy terrain on these trails keep things fun without being intimidating for all levels of fatbike riders.

SOUTH BOUNDARY (2 miles)

Our designated up-route to the reservoir South Boundary is a mellow climb with the perfect grade for fatbikes. Access from the main kiosk area or take a quick warm up pedal on the South Elk singletrack before connecting into South Boundary. Once at Murphy’s Junction continue straight onto upper Mainline to the reservoir.

ROLLING ROCK (.5 mile)

A half-mile of rolling flowy goodness! Groomed single-track specifically for fatbikes will leave you smiling ear to ear!

TRAIL AROUND THE RESERVOIR (1.5-3 miles)

This brand new trail offers some challenging singletrack for fatbikers. Ride as an out and back or connect with the Dam Loop to take in the stunning views of Jug Handle Mountain.

MAINLINE (1.8 miles)

Mainline is open to fatbikes for descending only from the reservoir down to the landing. This is a Nordic trail that is too steep for bikes to climb without damaging the trail. Users are encouraged to climb the lower section from the kiosk area to the lading to access Rolling Rock or Mid Mountain trails.

Glide along our corduroy NORDIC TRAILS on classic or skate skis, trek through the trees and along Boulder Creek on SNOWSHOES, or hit the trails on a FAT BIKE. A sunny winter day is calling!
