I always forget how beautiful these trails are and Chestnut didn't disappoint with the incoming storm providing a spectacular backdrop for new pictures for the trail guide. Get out there and check out this trail!

Ran this back to Trail Creek. No major changes to report but the views were great today.

This trail is open, however, CAUTION. Colorado weather is unpredictable this time of year and there may be the occasional fresh snow fall or mud and melting snow. This trail is in an area of the state where snowfall levels have dropped for the season and the majority of the trails are dry, muddy and/or only have a small bit of snow on them. Again, please use caution if traveling on these trails until the dryer season.

This trail is at a high altitude within the state of Colorado and has no maintainence. As such, this trail should be considering impassable until spring.

Ran this while checking on trails in the area, no changes to report and the trail is dry and dusty. The wind was whipping though and we couldn't really enjoy the views.
