Southwest of Gunnison, this popular area has moderate to advanced terrain with trails and open powder fields.

To reach the trailhead from Gunnison, head west on US50 for 9 miles. Turn south on SR149 towards Lake City. The trailhead is located 10 miles north of Lake City off SR149 at the Big Blue Access Alpine Plateau Turnoff.

Surrounding the Lake City area, there are 125 miles of groomed snowmobile trails. The trails are maintained by the Lake City Continental Divide Snowmobile Club, and are on a combination of National Forest, BLM and private lands.

All snowmobiles operating on federal lands within Colorado are required to be registered with Colorado State Parks. This registration permit is available at most National Forest ranger offices and at some chamber of commerce offices. It is highly recommended to purchase the $3 annual Colorado Search And Rescue Card (CORSAR) prior to snowmobiling to help reimburse local search teams should they be needed.

Overall, Continental Divide Trail is the 9th most popular snowmobile trail of all 24 snowmobiling rides in Colorado. Several of the better snowmobile trails are nearby Continental Divide Trail including Lake City To Creede / South Fork and Alpine Trail.
