Adams Fork Trail Horseback Riding

The 18th most popular equestrian trail in Colorado.

Near Antonio, the 6.5 mile Adams Fork Trail climbs west into the South San Juan Wilderness with views of Platoro Reservoir and Adams Fork Creek as it cuts its way through a glacier valley to the Continental Divide.

The trail follows a creek as it winds around side canyons, through Engelmann spruce and alpine fir forests.

To reach the horseback riding trailhead from Antonio, head west on SR14. At the intersection of FS250 and FS247, continue southwest on FS247 for 4.7 miles along Platoro Reservoir to the trailhead.

Overall, Adams Fork Trail is the 18th most popular horse trail of all 66 horseback rides in Colorado.
