Southeast of Walden and south of Gould, there is an 80 mile snowmobile trail network rolling around 9,000 feet elevation. The routes run through forest and meadows to above treeline. This trail network connects to the south with the Grand County trail network.
To reach the snowmobiling trailhead from Walden, head southeast on SR14 to Gould. In Gould, turn right on CR21 and park at the trailhead.
Note: the trails are maintained with the assistance of the North Park Snow Snakes Club.
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, Gould Trail System is the 21st most popular snowmobile trail of all 24 snowmobiling rides in Colorado.
