Please note: Our information comes from being up on the trails ourselves or updates from 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. The adventure lies in exploring the beautiful scenery and not necessarily the destination.
*Remember, your map may be flat, but our mountains aren’t, And cell reception here in the San Juans is hit and miss, mostly miss in the more remote areas. Check local weather and road conditions before starting out. Take water, layers of warm clothing, and maps. And allow plenty of time.
