Trails Conditions Updated as of Oct 31st, 2021

Trail Conditions

Trails are listed below by the COUNTY agencies responsible for clearing.

Winter has arrived even if it is for a brief moment before the real winter season sets in here in Ouray.

Recent winter storms have brought wet heavy snow to the area.  Expect all trails to be snow impacted and CLOSED for the season.

Any updates will appear below under corresponding trails as we receive or experience them.

There is too much beauty to miss by speeding or disrespecting the landscape of the San Juans Mountains, so ‘Stay the Trail and Tread Lightly’.

P.S. stay in the loop on our FB and Instagram pages!

Our information comes from being up on the trails ourselves or updates from County/USFS sources, and those that have been on particular trails in their own vehicles. So, as with any high mountain terrain, be CAUTIOUS! If you start up a trail and you are uncertain, don’t go any farther.

Remember, the adventure lies in exploring the beautiful scenery and seeing what’s around the next corner… not just a destination. Take water, layers of warm clothing, and maps. Allow plenty of time.
