Basalt, CO – Hard – 1.6 Miles – Hike, Run – Dirt
Nancy’s Path is a difficult trail you can hike and run. This is a 1.6 mile rocky trail in the Emma area of Basalt, CO. This trail passes through active agricultural operations. Dogs are not allowed on this trail.
To get to the trailhead from Downtown Basalt, head down valley on Highway 82. In 1.5 miles there will be an old brick building on the right and a small old white building (Emma Schoolhouse) on the left of the highway. Turn left off the highway to Emma. Immediately at the fork turn right. Take Emma Road for 1 mile to the bend and the sign that says Happy Day Ranch. Turn left onto the dirt private drive. Just up ahead is a red roof barn at the 4 way intersection. Turn right at the barn and just behind the barn is a small parking area and the trailhead.
