Game Trail Association is the Homeowners' Association that is responsible for the maintenance of the common property in Game Trail, a Colorado Mountain Community. Located on the east side of the Sawatch Mountain Range of the Continental Divide in the Upper Arkansas River Valley just northwest of the Town of Buena Vista, Game Trail enjoys temperate weather with a wide range of outdoor recreation to enjoy in every one of the four seasons. The elevation of Game Trail provides unmatched views of the valley and the surrounding mountains. Check out the Image Gallery for pictures of the scenery, Game Trail life, and local wildlife.
To protect the elk migration patterns in the Upper Arkansas Valley, a section of Game Trail is an elk preserve with an elk corridor where no development will occur. The 300-400 elk that winter in the valley can find refuge in Game Trail while foraging in the meadows and enjoying the winter sun.
Information about living in the Game Trail community is concisely presented in the Living in Game Trail pamphlet. Living in Game Trail Pamphlet
