Tigiwon Road #707 (winter)


This route starts at Hwy 24 near Minturn and climbs steadily up a groomed road ending at the Halfmoon Campground: The trail follows the Tigiwon Road to Halfmoon campground, Halfmoon trailhead, and Fall Creek trailhead. The grade is gentle in most places. At mile 6, the Tigiwon Community House is reached. From here, outstanding views of the Gore Range and Vail’s Back Bowls are possible. The trail continues for tow more miles to the campground. A popular spot in the summer, this is the trailhead for hikes to Mount of the Holy Cross and Notch Mountain. Eight miles of uphill touring could take all day, so leave early. The return trip should take only a third as long, as one is able to glide smoothly down the road or though the open meadows off the trail.
