Tie Hack Trail is a 3-mile summer use and a 5-mile winter use trail. It is a fairly primitive route that incorporates old logging roads and in some stretches there is just minimal clearing through the trees; however, it is marked with arrows making it is easier to follow. Please be aware and respectful of private property while using this trail. The Mosquito Range Heritage Initiative has produced a printable brochure to guide you along the trail.
From Fairplay, travel south on Highway 285 for about one mile and turn right onto County Road 18 (Fourmile Road). Travel about 3.5 miles and turn right onto Forest Road 182. In the summer hike or drive the 4WD road to the trailhead about one mile farther. Winter users will have to snowshoe or ski from this point.
