An improved dirt road that runs along the Lake Fork of the Gunnison River, which is full of trout!

Features: Fall Colors — River/Creek — Views [Add/Remove]

Runner Notes [Suggest Changes]

This is the course for the Lake Fork Flyathlon, an event that pairs trail running, fly fishing, and craft beer. The race is an out-and-back along this road, for a total distance of approximately 10 miles.

Description [Suggest Changes]

From the Lake Fork Cutoff Road, head north on this dirt road (County Road 64) through Gateview Canyon. The road parallels the creek for approximately 5 miles, with several established restrooms along the road. You'll see plenty of fly fishermen back here and will need to watch out for cars, but it is a great place to combine running and fly fishing!

Flora & Fauna [Suggest Changes]

Brown trout and rainbow trout thrive in every pool!
