Trail Information

Highlights

Montgomery Pass is a trail that climbs over 2000' towards the Continental Divide just west of the Rawah Wilderness area in North central Colorado. This trail is in the Colorado State Forest. It requires 4WD and can be more difficult during wet conditions. The lower half of the trail goes through a thick forest of lodgepole pines while the upper half begins to open up to allow for views of nearby Clark Peak and the North Michigan River valley below. The trail is suitable for aggressive SUVs, UTV's, ATV's, horses and mountain bikes.

The trail is partially open, but only to Waypoint 2 at the yurts. Colorado Parks and Wildlife will open the road once conditions improve.

Snow still covers the upper part of this trail. The Colorado State Forest reports that it is open up to the Yurts for now.

Excellent trail and a ton of fun. Encountered trail runners who were completing a 32 mile trail run from Lake Agnes. Very courteous runners on the trail. The State Park was packed.

Trail was in great shape. There was still a couple snow drifts near the summit, but easy to get through. Camping is clearly the go to activity this summer as every campsite was filled in the state forest.
