The Ghost Trail
Category : Hikes
The Ghost Trail to Potato Lake (aka Spud Lake) only appears in the winter thanks to Seniors Outdoors and some dedicated residents who maintain the trail. To get there drive north on Highway 550, past Durango Mountain Resort. A few miles past the resort you will see a big green water tank on the right-hand side of the road. About 100 yards after that is a pull-out on the right. Just park there, put on your snowshoes and head out. Depending on the conditions the trip can take anywhere from one to two hours, one way. More if the trail hasn’t been broken since the last snow storm.
