Trail Information


Ptarmigan Pass is a beautiful drive with amazing views of the Gore Range as well as the Sawatch Range including Mount of the Holy Cross. The trail itself has become increasingly difficult over the past few years notably through Wearyman Creek. Wearyman Creek flows all summer long and makes this trail a little more interesting due to the fact that you literally drive upstream through various obstacles for the first half mile or so of the trail. At the northwest end of the trail is Camp Hale, a WWII facility, which is where the U.S. Army trained soldiers in mountain warfare.
