Trail Navigation

Navigation in winter on the top of the Grand Mesa can be challenging during cloudy and occasional white-out conditions. Trail signs and maps have been designed to help skiers return safely to the correct trail-head in any conditions. There are two navigation methods:

1) All trail intersections are numbered on the trail maps and on south-facing trail signs at intersections. When facing any intersection sign with the trail map in hand (north arrow pointing up) the map will be correctly oriented.  Additional directional and trail name signs will help verify your route.

2) GMNC also provides geo-referenced topographic trail maps. These maps can be downloaded into the free Avenza app on a gps-enabled smartphone or tablet. The Avenza app will display your location when you are within the map area with only gps service. Cell service is not necessary. Click to download the Skyway-County Line or Ward geo-referenced map.
