REGION: Gunnison   TITLE: Quartz Creek System - Pitkin Cross Country Skiing
NOTES: East of Gunnision near Ohio City, the Quartz Creek System consists of three cross country ski trails. The Pitkin Ski Trails (21.5 miles) are ungroomed trails and roads east of Pitkin. The trailhead is located 0.5 miles east of Pitkin at the NFS Pitkin Campground. There are loop routes through lodgepole pine forests in the glacial valleys of the Quartz Creek drainage. Avoid Alpine Tunnel Road due to high avalanche danger.
