These trails are at a high altitude and are impassable until next season!

The season's first real snowstorm has moved through the Colorado High Country, and the daytime temps are not low enough to melt the storms anymore. This trail should be considered only partially open at it's lower altitudes and may be dangerous if you encounter snow, if not impassable, until Spring.

Gorgeous but very blustery day, winds were peaking 50 mph at the pass. The obstacle at WP2 is getting more dug out as time goes on, the bypass is barely viable and not safe. Colors were vibrant down in the trees, with minimal snow on the actual trail. Panoramic views were had from the summit.

Beautiful day on the trail. Leaves are golden but quickly turning brown. Still open all the way to the top. No snow to speak of on the trail yet.

Ran this trail with a group. It’s not a hard trail, however there are a few spots that may give stock 4x4s a challenge. Beautiful scenery once you get above the trees into the alpine environment. Definitely recommend.
