Trail shared by Andrew Walters

Great for long runs, even in the snow with views of the Uncompagre Plateau and Gunnison River.

Runner Notes

ATV traffic may be present, especially during hunting season.

Description

Third Flats Road is a long and steady climb. It is well marked, and you'll want to stay on the obvious track to get to the river and back. It is best done as part of Butterknife to Third Flats Loop.
