Popular spots include a small hill in town at Rickel Park and a much larger hill at Beaver Creek Reservoir. Or you can choose your own location from the surrounding 2 million acres of national forest.

Ice Skating & Hockey

Check out a pair of skates from the visitor center and hit the ice! The public rink is at the Visitor Center parking lot and is maintained by the town of South Fork from mid-December to mid-March, weather permitting. Pick-up hockey games are organized by locals, and  nearby Creede hosts a fun pond-hockey tournament every January.

Local Outdoor Clubs

The Silverthreaders and Powderbusters are diverse groups of locals, part-timers, and visitors that enjoy ATV riding, camping, hiking, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, fishing, hunting, skiing and motorcycling. Their many organized activities aim to preserve the multi-use of our magnificent outdoors and impart responsible recreation use. They organize weekly outings for hiking (3x’s per week), ATV/4x4 rides, snowmobile and snowshoeing.  

Consult local sources concerning directions and trail conditions before going out. Never enter the backcountry alone and always leave detailed information with someone. Information on Outdoor Safety:
