Overview

Hurricane Pass is a unique trail in the San Juan Mountains above the timberline. High alpine animals are frequently spotted, bringing another feature to attract users to this beautiful area. Climbing steeply up the mountain between Hurricane Peak and Brown Mountain, this mildly technical yet intriguing trail is a common addition to form one of the many takes on the Alpine Loop. Combine this trail with County Road 2, California Pass, and either Corkscrew Pass or County Road 10 to create an epic day-long adventure.
