Trail Information

Highlights

SOB Hill is a great off-road trail that is a more difficult bypass of the west side of Georgia Pass. It takes you up a steep hillside with a large section of boulders formally known as SOB Hill, giving this trail its name. This route is also referred to as Trail 10 but due to the nature of the obstacles as the trail grew in popularity the name changed. After the challenge, you continue climbing up the Continental Divide's west side until you reach the peak of Georgia Pass. From here at an elevation of more than 11,600 feet, you can see the entire South Park Valley all the way to Longs Peak and most of the White River National Forest.

The season's first real winter storm has moved through, and daytime temps are not enough to melt the snow. Numerous reports indicate there is impassable/dangerous snow on the trail at this time and it is likely going to be done and closed for the season.

The SOB part of SOB Hill was super fun! My only complaint was that it wasn't longer and we didn't take any photos. That being said, once you start and it progressively gets harder, you might find yourself thinking how long can this go on. I did catch my buddy in a square peg round hole dilemma later on down the trail. PSA- Seeing trash on the trail sucks! If you do come across trash, stop and pick it up so the next group does not have that experience. Better yet...pack your trash!

This trail was fantastic. The trail holds up to its name. It was a lot of fun to climb and the views from the top are absolutely amazing. I will definitely be running this trail again.

This trail has a big log across the trail about a mile up from *** hill. I assume this is the only obstacle as I saw recent turnaround marks on the other side of the log from Georgia pass.

Seasonal closure has been lifted, no reports yet on snow conditions, but this trail typically holds snow a little longer than the surrounding trails, which just became passable.
