Description

The Gore Range Trail runs the north-south length of the Dillon Ranger District portion of the Eagles Nest Wilderness. The trail begins at the Copper Mountain exit (196) along Interstate 70 and finishes in the Spring Creek area north of Green Mountain Reservoir.

The trail climbs over Uneva and Eccles Passes before dropping below tree-line. It then climbs in and out of numerous drainages as it travels north. The Gore Range Trail is named after Sir St. George Gore, an Irish nobleman, who led a hunting expedition across this mountain range in 1853. Jim Bridger, aka King of the Mountain Men, served as his guide. They crossed what is now the Gore Range and hunted extensively in the Vail area.
