North Fork Crossroads Trail System

The North Fork Crossroads Trail system is a prime example of the collaborative spirit of The Nature Connection. Almost 9 miles of hiking, biking and running trails have been constructed on the North Fork Recreation District, Delta County School District and BLM properties surrounding Hotchkiss High School. Local high school student interns and volunteers from the Colorado Plateau Mountain Bike Association forged beautiful singletrack that snakes through the desert and sagebrush terrain. 

This is a perfect place for families new to mountain biking and riders looking for fun trails close to home. Spring provides gorgeous wildflowers and the low elevation and open exposure allows for great conditions when many mountain trails are still snowbound. 
Start your adventure at The Nature Connection headquarters or the North Fork Pool. Spend some time honing your skills at the pump track and then head out. See the map below for more details about the trails! Trails can also be explored on the COTREX site managed by Colorado Parks and Wildlife.
