Trail Maps & Conditions

Trails Conditions Updated as of October 30th, 2020

 

Trail Conditions

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

After a run of amazingly warm October days, the area finally received 12-14" of snow in the higher elevations this week, accompanied by a few very COLD days. Our managing County agencies have officially closed all trails. 

SOA has now CLOSED for the season and trail conditions will not be updated until spring. Have a beautiful and safe winter!

Oh...and one more thing...Please Tread Lightly and proceed SLOWLY!

 

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.
