Wormhole Loop Trails
The Wormhole Loops Trials are non-motorized multi-use trails located north of Simpson’s Rest in Trinidad. The trails are free and open to the public. These trails are currently being built by volunteers from the Trinidad Trails and Trinidad Outdoor Club. There are approximately 4 miles of trail completed (see map). As new trails are built, the map below will be updated. The grand opening for the trail was spring 2017. Since then we have added to the original Wormhole Loop with Crossbed Way and Sandstone Loop being opened in 2018. In 2019 we hope to have another contingency of AmeriCorps volunteers in Trinidad for 6 weeks to help us complete yet another one mile section of trail at this ever-growing complex of trails.
Min altitude: 6076 ft
Max altitude: 6424 ft
