3 TRAILHEADS TO CHOOSE FROM

WilliamsPeakTrailhead

 Williams Peak Trailhead, a out and back trail known for its amazing scenery, ascending several thousand feet and then follows the William’s Divide offering you astounding views as you look over the mountain tops. This trail makes for a great 2-hour ride and it is nearly impossible to get lost. When your time is halfway you simply turn around and head back. You will be surprised that even though you are on the same trail, it will look and feel very different going the other direction.

What to Expect 

It is an out and back trail, meaning it is nearly impossible to get lost unless you go off the trail.  You will start to go up the mountain after you leave the trailhead. About 15 minutes up the trail, you will be high enough on the mountain that you will notice the views are getting amazing. Feel free to stop and take all the pictures you like. After you have gone up a couple thousand feet in elevation, the trail will go into the forest. Eventually, you will come to a point where the trail is blocked by deep snow and impassable. You should arrive at this point 30 to 45 minutes after you started your ride. At the 45-minute mark, you should turn around and head back to the trailhead. On the way down, you will be able to see the awesome views better than on the way up. We want you to use extra caution on the way down the mountain, as trail conditions this time of year can be dirt, mud, icy snow packed, or powder. It is more difficult to slow down when you are going downhill.

You should dress very warmly! We chose this 90-minute ride so that you can take in a great mountain experience and hopefully be back to your warm car before you get cold. Please keep in mind that space is limited. We only have 12 ATVs. Each ATV can carry a driver plus one passenger.
