The status of many popular high elevation 4x4 trails in Colorado are listed below and are updated as the trails open or close and as trail users contribute. The list includes some 2 wheel drive access roads. The voluntary trail-status updates come from many sources, primarily individual trail riders plus the National Forest Service and the BLM.
As Colorado mountain weather can be highly unpredictable, please check with the relevant information body yourself for any recent changes. Conditions can change without notice. It is also subjective - a trail one person says is open, may be considered too dangerous to travel by another.


Review PREVIOUS YEARS trail status updates, dating back to 2001.

2020 information, 2019 information, 2018 season, 2017 season, 2017 season, 2016 season, 2015 season, 2014 season, 2013 season, 2012 season, 2011 season, 2010 season, 2009 season, 2008 season, 2007 season, 2006 season, 2005 Season, 2004 Season,2003 Season, the 2002 Season or the 2001 Season.

This list is intended as a guide only and no responsibility is taken for any incident arising from mis-information. The ultimate responsibility as to whether the trail is safe to travel, within the capabilities of yourself and your vehicle, or indeed open at all, is taken by YOU. If in doubt, DO NOT TRAVEL. The inclusion of any trail on this page does not mean it is open or legal to travel. Conditions change, and trail status may change, often without warning. Use common sense, and do not go around closure barriers. YOU have responsibility for your own actions and all of these trails should be considered TRAVEL AT YOUR OWN RISK AND RESPONSIBILITY.

** We made it about 2/3 of the way to the top. Still blocked by snow up there, but is melting fast.
- Maybe another week until it is passable.
- Very rocky as usual. Also wet and slippery in spots. FYI, we were on dirt bikes.
- Creeks were very passable.

05/20/21 - COurtesy of Gary M.
- Leavenworth Creek Road FSR 248.1, the eastern approach to Argentine Pass Road (FSR 724.1,) is open to Leavenworth Creek Spur Road FSR 248.1P at around 10,780ft. Snow drifts kick in above this.
- However, the snow is melting rapidly so this report will probably be outdated in a few days.

- Trail is OPEN and clear all the way to the lake.
- Not a trace of snow left (not surprisingly by this time of year). Trail is in good condition.
- What used to be whoop-de-whoops on the lower section are just ruts now.
- The mud bog by the lake is drier with easier entrance/exit ramps than I remember it last time I did this trail (2015).
- Lake is beautiful, as always. Great wildflowers this year.
- EXTREMELY BUGGY at the lake - bring bug spray!
- Sad to note - Lots of toilet paper "flowerettes" near the parking lot! Please pack it out or bury it!
- Oh, and there was a very friendly Empire Police Officer at the trail head handing out parking tickets to illegally parked trucks/trailers, so if you're parking here, pay attention to the signs, they are pretty clear.

6/12/21 - Courtesy of Daegan O.
- Bill Moore Lake trail is clear until the last climb around the ridgeline about 1/2 mile before the lake. Impassable snow at that point.
- I connected through and came out Red Elephant Hill Road FSR 171.3A which was clear.
- No report on the northern miller loop section as yet.

6/1/21 - Courtesy of Jim O.
- Red Elepahnt Hill Road FSR 173.1A is partially open.
- This trail is snow blocked 2 miles in, just behind the actual "red elephant hill".

- Trails OPEN all the way in this area NE of Buena Vista.
- We started on CR 301 to Ruby Mountain and traveled onto different County Roads and ended up on main street in Buena Vista.
- Trail in good condition, the first section had the most washout areas but easy enough to travel on in a 4X4. I would not take this trail if any heavy rain is predicted if starting from Ruby Mountain trailhead. You can tell that they get flash floods through the trail area.
- Beautiful ride, we saw a herd of mountain goats on the day we rode the trail.

5/24/21 - Courtesy of Aaron J.
- Fourmile Area which consists of many trails in BLM and Forest Service lands just outside of Buena Vista is OPEN.
- 2-3 very, very, small mud areas, will probably dry up in 1-2 sunny days.
- This is a fun easy array of trails.

- OPEN all the way.
- The gatekeeper as first obstacle after you cross the creek is very challenging. There were 4 of us and all had to use the winch point except for 1 who had 37's.
- After the gatekeeper it is 2 hours of uphill over boulders of varying sizes. Nothing big but lots of bouncing and banging around. A few obstacles going up but not difficult to get over. Took 2 hours after getting past the gatekeeper and 1 hour on the return.
- Fun trail but need a lift. Lockers not needed, if getting winched up gatekeeper.

- Went over from the Basalt side and went down on the other side about halfway. Didn't need to go any further. Camped at Molly Brown and went over in my KLR and sidecar with my 3 kids ( dogs ). No problems or blockage anywhere. Totally clear.

7/30/21 - Courtesy of Peter Off-RoadX.com
- Trail was CLOSED.
- Surprised to find the trail closed. Unaware if it has re-opened since.
** 7/31/21: Talked with the USFS on another trail today and they said they did not know why Hagerman Pass was closed, or how long it will be closed.

7/15/21 - Courtesy of Ruth S.
- Yes, Hagerman Pass is OPEN again.
- On July 15th, we drove Hagerman Pass to the top and down a couple of miles on the other side. We had called the USFS because we had heard the pass was closed, also. The Pass was open, but the road from the Hagerman Trail on the west side leading into Gypsum (maybe Brush Creek Road?) was closed due to the Sylvan Fire.
- The USFS person we spoke to also said they were trying to keep unsuspecting drivers off of the trail, as it was sometimes coming up on GPS as an alternative to I-70 when Glenwood Canyon was closed, as it can be taken all the way into Aspen. Not sure if the gate has been closed since then.

7/2/21 - Courtesy of Joe M.
- Yes, Hagerman Pass is now OPEN.
- Gate was open near the top and trail was free from snow at the top. See trail scenes on FB.
- Drove over to Ivanhoe Lake and then turned around and headed back due to heavy rain.

- We tried Hagerman Pass and we only made it 2 miles in before the snow got too deep.

- Jones Pass Road is OPEN, yet still blocked by snowbank.
- I traveled to the second switchback from the summit, but I could see from just above timberline the road was still blocked by snow just before the summit.
- Road was mostly dry and in good shape all the way to the second switchback.
- Snowbank at the summit appeared to be pretty substantial.

** CORE announces Clear County is happy for the temporary closure of Saxon Mountain Road order to expire tomorrow. - Stay The Trail has been given permission to install appropriate signage to inform the public of the technical issues involved in traveling the trail.
- Applause go out to Clear County, MHJC, CORE and Stay the Trail for their efforts in securing the reopening of this quality trail! A classic example of interested parties coming together over the table to highlight the public's desire to retain access and thru trail routes.

7/25/21 - Courtesy of Fort Lupton Press. :)
- Clear Creek County has closed a four mile section of Saxon Mountain Road due to rockslides and deteriorating road conditions.
- A rollover in early July plus concern for amateur drivers means the road will be closed for safety reasons from the base in Georgetown until about four miles up.
** A proposed 90 day closure has been reduced to a temporary closure that will apply through August 3, 2021, yet could be extended if necessary.
- A proposal has been put forward to allow 4x4 groups to work with the current short-staffed county R&B to stabilize the road.

8/27/21;
- Trail is OPEN to the top.
- Definitely an underrated trail. We did this trail just to finish off the afternoon after our morning hike, but it is really quite scenic at the top, especially on a crystal clear, post-Monsoon season day like today. There are wonderful views in all directions. I suspect that the trail in underrated because the road is really very mild, with no significant obstacles, just a few mildly rocky spots.
- The road is signed as being closed to motor vehicles about 700 ft shy of the last T intersection at the top. To the left takes you along the rim above Sheephead Gulch to Columbine Mine, at approx. 12,450 ft, but there is no gate and clearly, people have been ignoring the closure signs - shame! If this beautiful area is ever fully closed, well, we'll all know why. Sigh!
- This would be a great fall color run as much of the lower section winds thru a huge Aspen stand, and once on top you have great views of the Aspen stands on neighboring mountains.
- As for neighboring trails, we also did nearby FSR 399, Flume Gulch Road, a side trail off Lost Canyon Road which climbs above Twin Lakes, but it just winds thru the forest, not much in the way of spectacular views on that one compared to Lost Canyon Road.

- Medano Pass Primitive Road is partially open up to the 4th creek crossing, 6.4 miles (10 km) from the southern entrance of the road. The road is gated at this location.
- Heavy snow fell on the park and preserve May 18, delaying the opening of the road.
- The road is gated on the east side of the range at Muddy Creek crossing, USFS.
- Primitive campsites in the lower part of Medano Canyon are now accessible by high-clearance 4WD vehicle.
- The pass road will fully reopen when snow and road conditions allow, typically late May.
- Sand conditions are average. Most high-clearance 4WD vehicles can make it through sandy sections without dropping air pressure. Drive through sand as fast as safely possible in 4 Low gear; momentum is important in sand.
- Creek crossings are moderate. Drive through crossings slowly, steering toward the uphill side to avoid the deepest holes.
- NPS Medano Pass Primitive Road Map includes GSD National Preserve campsite locations and hiking trails.

- We didn't do Red Elephant Hill, but did the Mill Creek Road loop as an offshoot to Bill Moore Lake. Trail in good condition.
- Great wildflowers this year in the few open meadows.
- EXTREMELY BUGGY - bring bug spray!
- This trail is almost entirely in a dense forest, and as such it really isn't very scenic. In fact, the trail is quite tight with lots of tippy spots that threaten to put your body panels into tree trunks or boulders. We were fine in a short wheelbase vehicle, but I can't imagine it would be much fun in, say, a 4-door Wrangler.
- Oh, and there was a very friendly Empire Police Officer at the trail head handing out parking tickets to illegally parked trucks/trailers, so if you're parking there, pay attention to the parking signs, they are pretty clear.

- *Caution* The main obstacle (north side of St. Vrain River) has an illegal bypass that is being used. This use has dislodged the large log that is holding the road in place below the obstacle. This condition will make the lower part of the obstacle very challenging. Please be careful.

- Just some tiny remnants of last week's snow by the trail high up on the Leadville side.
- Encountered just two other vehicles, saw a couple more at a distance.
- More snow expected soon... Expect change in trail status!

- Trail still OPEN.
- Very busy trail on a Saturday! At least this is one of Colorado's high mountain shelf roads that generally has room to pass oncoming traffic. This time we tried the side roads that branch off just below London Mill (Alma side of the pass): Oliver Twist Lake - The route to this lake is quite short and easy, in fact it is smoother and easier than Mosquito Pass Rd itself. It's an interesting lake with mining structures above treeline.
- Cooney Lake - If you continue on past Oliver Twist Lake on FSR 452, the road gets much rougher, with 2-3 mildly technical obstacles, and a deep water crossing (at least 24-30 inches deep). However, the reward is another gorgeous high-mountain lake at approx. 12,600 ft!

8/29/21 - Courtesy of Paige C.
- Trail continues to be open all the way.
- Honestly thought the trail was in decent shape - rocky and all, but that's normal. Had a great run, passed 10-15 vehicles plus motorcycles.

- I met up with two other guys on bikes and they confirmed no way anything is going over from the east (Alma) side but a snow machine.
- You can get a long way past the New London mine now.
- Pirate Road FSR 856, spur trail off Mosquito Pass Road, is open all the way to the end around 12,600 ft, below Mount Buckskin rising to 13,796 ft. Trail is good, see photos, rock crawler best option in places. Deep puddles too.

- No surprise, Mosquito Pass west side approach County Road 3 is still impassible.
- The trail is bad as soon as you turn onto the start of the rough section at Diamond Mine at Evans Gulch Reservoir #2.
- See Mosquito Pass Update photo on Bushducks FB, where County Road 3 is well outlined by the deep snow visible on the road as it winds its way up to the pass between Kuss Peak to the north and Mt. Evans to the south.
- See wildflowers emerging as the trail clears! Expect slow to no travel above Conley Lakes, unless you packed the snow shoes.

- Someone/some group has done a lot of work clearing trees in the forested section on the Tincup side of the pass - Thank you, whomever you are!
- We ran it in a 4-door Jeep Rubicon, no problems at all. Tight trail and rocky coming up the south side, and tight through the trees on the north side (Tincup side), but again, doable all the way. Met up with some hunters on ATVs in the pass, passed several side-by-sides and ATV as we drove north (they were going south).
- Trail is in decent shape and as expected after reading the Charles Wells guidebook: rocky in places, muddy & wet in others. Easily doable by our Rubicon.

6/9/21
- Courtesy of Beth T. - We traveled from the Pitkin side on FSR 540. This trail is blocked by two patches of snow just below the summit on the Pitkin side. Maybe 1-2 weeks still before it melts.
- We then hiked to the pass from the blockade, and found there are a few patches of snow on the Tincup side as well.

- Trail OPEN all the way, Crested Butte, to Aspen.
- Trail is as last reported, beautiful lush green!
- This is my 7th crossing in 14 years. Last year and this year on the Crest Butte side very little traffic, 2 motorcycles last year and one motorcycle and one ATV. I only mention this as I am a solo traveler and I keep thinking if I break down it could be a long wait for help.
- Quite rocky but so enjoyable!
- On the Aspen side 5 or 6 vehicles and several hikers.

- Trail remains OPEN.
- Very lush scene due to all the rain. Waterfall on north side of trail is bigger than we have ever seen, just beautiful!

- Poughkeepsie Gulch Trail is OPEN for the season!
- I would like to thank the volunteers from the Western Slope 4 Wheelers who have worked many hours to get this trail open and the multiple hours to keep it open for the public! We hope you all get to enjoy this trail this summer!
- However, on a less than positive note, we would like to let the public know that we found more trail damage this year. We found several sets of new SxS and at least one full sized vehicle with aggressive mud terrain tires that bypassed the bottom gate in an attempt to run the trail. They apparently turned around when they ran into snow, as we did not find any tracks in the snow from them. The damage can be seen from a satellite map from last year at N 37° 57.233 W 107° 37.591.
- This has prompted the USFS to look at relocating the lower gate closer to the trail head to prevent this from happening again.
- The WS4W did drag a bunch of trees across the access spot to this in an attempt to block future people from crossing the Uncomphagre River at that spot.
- If you have any knowledge on who damaged this land and accessed a closed trail prior to its opening, we ask you to contact Officer Stone with the USFS in Montrose at this number 970-240-5300.

** Multiple washouts on Radical Hill Road today due to the storm.
- One major washout around 12,400 ft elevation, on the south face of Teller Mountain was too much to surmount as the weather closed in on us. We attempted repairs to the trail, yet had to give up due to rocks sliding down the face of the mountain. Scary!
- The Jeep that joined in with trail repairs was able to turn around at the washout. We were in a longer wheelbase truck, so had to back up Radical Hill as the clouds rolled in. Not a fun activity!
- The Jeep from the other side said it was washing out coming up from the cabin and likely impassable now as well.
- After the snow and hail it was a complete downpour.
- Planning to ride my dirt bike up there tomorrow morning to check the status.
- Hopefully there will be enough people up there tomorrow that we can team up and hit it with shovels, but its gonna take some work.

- Just went all the way through Radical!
- See snow trail scene before you reach the cabin & switchbacks.

- I did not go down Radical Hill, but there are two significant snow drifts across it.
- However, it looked at though motorcycles and bikes had made it through.

- Trail is OPEN all the way. North side descent should be attempted with extreme caution.
- Typical Red Cone conditions until about 11,000 ft where it is slightly muddy in the trees. Final ascent to the summit of Red Cone is slushy but doable if you've made it that far.
- The North side descent is currently very dangerous from the recent snow above 12,500ft. About 3-4ft of wet snow blankets the first descent from the top. Some side-by-sides and ATVs were able to make the slippery descent. Reports of one Wrangler sliding down the entire hill, as a result, no other 4x4 rigs attempted the descent from the summit today. Subsequent descents were in good shape.
- Webster Pass was clear.
- Good weather this coming week might melt the snow cap enough to keep Red Cone passable for a few more weeks.

8/3/21 - Courtesy of Doug H.
- Ran Red Cone with a group of old CJ's.
- There's a large hole that has developed in the steepest part of the descent, that I don't recall being there before. Pretty nerve wracking when your front tire drops into it!

6/26/21 - Courtesy of trail-rider JOsh B.
- Red Cone was opened today by volunteer group Mile High Jeep Club :)
- Handcart Gulch Road remains CLOSED due to a large amount of snow just below Webster Pass.
** Red Cone is one-way travel, you have to get to Red Cone from West of the Divide, south of Breck. Then there is no easy return to 285 via dirt, you have to go down to Montezuma, through Keystone->Dillon->Frisco->Breck.

- Rocky, but nothing too technical.

8/28/21 - Courtesy of Scott D.
- Trail is OPEN all the way.
- Trail is very, very rocky! There are no technical obstacles, but for most rigs this is a low gear + low range, walking-pace drive requiring careful tire placement from the very beginning all the way to the end. If the first 1/4 mile isn't your cup of tea, turn around, because it doesn't get any better, and in fact gets a little bit worse!
- The trail ends unceremoniously at a small, wooded parking area with a few primitive campsites near a 10th Mountain Division backcountry hut. From there it is a 0.5 mile hike to Slide Lake itself, which is as pretty an alpine lake as I've ever seen. The water is crystal clear!

- Best guess, it is a month or so out from melting.

- Trail is OPEN from 285 all the way to the top. :)
- Trail is in great condition this year.
- The narrowest switchback segment (second from the bottom on the 285 side) is still narrow, but in good condition with no wash-outs or tippy spots.
- Very wet in the valley!
- Looks like someone, perhaps the Forest Service??, a club? has been doing work to maintain the trail and block off trail shortcuts. THANK YOU!

7/13/21 - Courtesy of Reuben R. & Colorado Side x Side member Brandy S.I.
- CO Side x Side reportedly hand-shoveled the remaining snow blockage off Hardcart Gulch to free-up that side of the pass, susequently opening up Webster Pass in all directions. Nice work people!

** Webster Pass OPEN, yet Handcart Gulch FSR 121 remains closed due to snow blockade near the top of Handcart.

- From the west (Leadville side)on County Road 7, the road is totally clear up as far as the FS 150 turnoff to Gold Basin, just short of timberline.
- Right after that turn, the snow drifts cover the County Road 7 as far as I could see.
- West side, all dry to the FS 150 Gold Basin Road turnoff, then deep snow to pass.

- Williams Pass is OPEN.
- Traveling over Williams Pass from the Hancock side, you can then drive up to the West Side of the Alpine Tunnel.
** NOTE - you must then return the same way and back over Williams Pass as the West Alpine Tunnel road below the Williams Pass intersection is still closed and you can't connect with the Middle Quartz Creek road on the Pitkin side.
- Consider supporting CORE, after viewing a video of CORE's trail crew manually splitting and hauling the landslide boulders off the trail to then act as safety guard rocks on the trail edge.

- Trail is open and in great condition.
- There is a little rock obstacle about halfway on the trail. The obstacle is uphill going north, and downhill going south. This trail is more of a dirt road other than that obstacle.
- Had fun going a little quicker on dirt, plus most of the southern part of the trail is like a skinny ridge road with drop offs on both sides. Most of the southern part is also a canopy road.
