Horsefly Trail

  It's a long drive from Montrose to Horsefly Trail but you always have a good time when you're hiking along it. This part of Colorado is always a pleasure to visit during hiking season. In the Uncompahgre Plateau Mountains you'll find lots of hiking trails where beautiful scenery awaits you.
Spending too much time indoors got you down? No problem, if you happen to be in Montrose County of Colorado, Horsefly Trail is a great local trail for doing a bit
    of leg stretching. It's a splendid idea to visit Hanks Creek, it's close to Horsefly Trail; get yourself into a kayak and hit San Miguel River. These mountains rock, just look at all the exciting stuff to do in the Uncompahgre Plateau
Mountains. If you're here at Horsefly Trail, you could have a look at South Fork Clay Creek; get drenched paddling on San Miguel River. The fine people of Norwood like to hang out nearby; a short journey to Dollarhide Spring is always worthwhile. Why not camp at Iron Spring Campground since you're here at Horsefly Trail, and Burnt Stump Spring is a wonderful spot to take a look at while you're at Horsefly Trail. That right there is a load already, but it carries  
on; Horsefly Trail has it all. If you came for an overnight stay Antone Spring Campground is a good location to camp; a tour to Sanborn Park revitalizes the soul. You truly have to love the Uncompahgre Plateau Mountains. Uncompahgre National Forest is a nice site to go if you're at Horsefly Trail; a perfect spot to stop by is Little Red Canyon.
