This is an amazing trail for snowshoeing right outside Winter Park Resort that will allow you to get deep into the forest of James Peak Protection Area. 

Starting at 9,220 feet of elevation, this 5 mile out-and-back snowshoe begins its 965 foot elevation gain meandering through a quiet forest. The trail will take you through the woods for a few miles, and you can turn around whenever you like. If you're up for a challenge and have a lot of time, you can continue on the trail and eventually summit James Peak at 13,301 feet of elevation.
