Trail Information

Highlights

Hurricane Pass is unique in the San Juan Mountains in that almost the entire length of the trail is situated above timberline. This offers travelers the opportunity to observe high alpine wildlife such as Marmots in relatively close proximity. In addition, gorgeous wildflowers abound in late July contrasting the jagged, rocky peaks that seem to extend forever in all directions.

A recent winter storm in the Ouray/ Silverton area has dropped a measurable amount of snow and high winds have been in the area. Some high country routes in the area may be passable but high country travel is not recommended.

We ran Hurricane Pass as a quick run between Engineer Pass and Corkscrew. Not the first time I've done this little "connection" pass and it was as nice and easy as I remember.

Great little connector trail with great views. Unfortunately the condition of the trail is deteriorating quickly. Take it easy on the trail - lost of fast moving bikes and SxS around blind corners.
