The Mount Margaret Trailhead is one of two trailheads (the other being the Lady Moon TH) that offers recreational usage for nearby village of Red Feather Lakes. From this trailhead leads a popular 4 mile long trail to the summit of Mount Margaret, services campsites and connects to a network of Forest Service roads. The trailhead offers car and horse trailer parking (more of which can be found across the street) and a bathroom open year-round. While Mount Margaret is the usual destination, several loops can be made in the system of trails and roads. Hikers, ski and snowshoers, mountain bikers, horseback riders and dogs are all permitted. The trailhead can be found at (UTM) 13T 0454915mE 4514774mN
