Anne U. White Trail
COVID-19 Safety Information
Starting May 9, face coverings are required at trailheads, when passing other visitors, and when six feet of distancing cannot be maintained. See the Public Health Order for more information.
Please visit in groups of four or fewer and stay at least six feet away from people who are not from the same household.
Park in designated spaces only and follow trail directional arrows. Rangers are issuing fines for violations.
Consider using neighborhood trails rather than driving to a trailhead.
Parks and trails are generally less crowded in the early morning.
No gatherings are permitted at this time. Most restrooms remain open, but some are closed. Restrooms are cleaned daily.
- 28 parking spaces.
- 1 accessible parking space.
- Limited street parking in designated areas only. Please respect the neighbors.
- A port-a-potty is located near the trailhead.
- A permanent restroom is scheduled to be built in 2020.
Keep In Mind
- The Anne U. White Trail follows the Fourmile Canyon Creek and crosses the creek numerous times.
- Bikes and horses are not allowed.
Management Plan Amended
On Dec. 13, 2018, the Board of County Commissioners approved an amendment to the Fourmile Canyon Creek Park Management Plan to allow for expansion of the parking area that incorporates the following considerations:
- Parking capacity may be expanded to accommodate up to 30 vehicles (at least 15 to 20 vehicles seem feasible).
- Flood resilience should be a significant component of the design (e.g., 100-year flood design, boulder toe wall, etc.).
- Stream restoration is an important component of the project. Consideration should be given to supporting montane riparian ecosystem functions in the overall design.
- A permanent restroom facility may be constructed assuming a suitable location can be permitted.
- The Anne U. White Trail shall be designated for pedestrian use only.
- A plan for managing parking and other safety and enforcement concerns on Wagonwheel Gap Road during periods of high visitation shall be developed in coordination with the Transportation Department, law enforcement, the local fire district, and neighboring land owners prior to reopening the trail.
