Runner Notes

This trail has a great smooth, wide, flat surface for running.

Description

This gentle multi-use (non-motorized) path follows the Big Wood River from Galena to the North Fork Campground. There are many ways to do this trail - either by setting up a car shuttle and running it in its entirety, or parking at one of the many pull-offs and enjoying specific segments as an out and back.

The trail is generally wide with a fine gravel surface and winds through wide meadows of scrub, grasses and scattered wildflowers. Aspen groves and evergreen stands alternate as the trail crosses the river repeatedly. Enjoy views Galena Peak and the impressively colored Boulder Mountains.

The trail crosses numerous side access roads - these intersections are marked by gates for safety. For the most part, the Harriman Trail stays on the south side of Highway 75, but does cross the highway near the Wood River Campground, so use caution in this area. Note: bikes are allowed on this trail.

Flora & Fauna

Wildflowers along the river are a given!
