Description

Instead of heading east toward Minturn on the main Whiskey Creek Trail, the Whiskey Creek Alternate Trail goes west and ends at the Homestake K8 School in Eagle Vail. Roll through aspen groves, brushy dense thickets, and open meadows on this well-packed dirt trail.

There are not very many roots or rocks to contend with, but this path is often overgrown with grasses that obscure the already skinny trail. You'll get a few views west of Eagle Vail's hillsides and wildflowers make their home here. The noise from I70 increases as you near the end of the trail at the southwest corner of the football field.

Note: this is a multi-use trail so expect foot traffic.
