Trail Information


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.

Snow has begun to fall in the Colorado High Country making travel risky. Although the route may not be blocked by snow as of yet, the unpredictable conditions this time of year make travel unsafe. See you next year!

Scenic, above timberline trail that connects Corkscrew and California Pass.

This is an easy trail with great views. Running this trail from Silverton can be the start of a great loop for almost any stock vehicle in conjunction with California Pass to Animas Forks, then CR 2 back to Silverton.

Fairly easy road, will need 4L. This was a nice middle ground between Ophir and Imogene.
