Miles and miles of some of the best hiking, trail running and walking trails are located right at Snow Mountain Ranch.

Stop by the Program Building to learn about hikes and head out on your own or join our Adventure Staff as they lead you on a day hike to discover the beautiful peaks, wildflowers, lakes and waterfalls of the Rocky Mountains.

Our two most popular hiking trails are the Waterfall Trail and the 9-Mile Mountain Trail.  The Waterfall Trail is a family-friendly, 3 mile round-trip hike.  The trailhead is located up Blue Ridge Road.  This hike takes anywhere from 45 minutes to several hours, depending on your pace and how long you want to spend at the waterfall.

9-Mile Mountain Trail is an intermediate trail up Nine Mile Mountain to a beautiful lookout point.  It is 2.5 miles out-and-back and ends at God’s Mailbox, where you can leave a special message or note.

Snow Mountain Ranch is an intermediate/difficult out-and-back hike up Snow Mountain, which includes 5 peaks.  It is roughly 6 miles round-trip.  The trailhead is located near the Reservoir.
