Directions From Greer go north on Rt 373 toward Rt 260. Trailhead is on the left (west) side, opposite the
Greer lakes.

At the entrance of a forest just north of Greer lies the trailhead of Squirrel Springs. Hikers, bikers, and
horseback riders enjoy the ponderosa pines and aspens lining many of the forking paths within this network of trails. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing walk in the woods or a vigorous expedition, Squirrel Springs offers numerous trails of varying length and difficulty. Spring through fall, those who traverse these old logging roads enjoy the vibrant colors and rich fragrances of nature, sometimes catching a glimpse of the wildlife that inhabit the region. In winter, a blanket of snow under the powdered ponderosa pines provides a magnificent setting for cross country skiers and snow shoers of all experience levels. For the most ambitious, continuing northwest to the trail’s end will lead you to the Pole Knoll trails, providing many more miles of enjoyment and exploration.
