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.

2021 information, 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.

** West Alpine Tunnel Road FSR 839 remains CLOSED between Sherrod Loop and the intersection with Williams Pass Trail FSR 298 (which OPENED in early August.)
- To access West Alpine Tunnel Road you have to drive Williams Pass Trail to reach the West Alpine Tunnel Area and the West Portal of the Alpine Tunnel.

7/1/22 - Courtesy of Chuck S.
- Alpine Tunnel Road has RE-OPENED following the completion of rock scaling works at Pallisades Wall.
** It is unclear as yet whether the road is fully open to vehicles as well as motorbikes at present.
- Been there? Able to verify?
- Upload your photos/videos/trail-status update.

- Alpine Tunnel Road FSR 839 CLOSED due to rock scaling, part of the Pallisades Walls reconstruction.
- The Pallisades Walls collapsed at N38.62451 W106.39381 along the Alpine Tunnel Road back in 2016 due to a snow avalanche. This resulted in the closure of the former DSP & P railroad / wagon road grade below the Alpine Tunnel west portal, before you reach Alpine Station historic site.
- The long awaited reconstruction is begining June 13-29 of 2022. Rock scaling will be taking place during that time.
- Reconstruction of the walls will take place during the summers of 2023 and 2024.
- Please respect the temporary closure for your safety.

- Trail is in good condition and still OPEN all the way to the top.
- Took an off chute over to Santiago Mine, then went on to the top. Couple of the switchbacks above the tree line are washed out but had two stock Jeeps that made it with no problems. - I suggest bringing a good zoom lens for camera as we saw two big bull moose in the bottom and a herd of at least 50 elk. - Great trail and recommend for all. :)

- Argentine Pass is OPEN.
- All trails around Waldorf and Argentine Pass are OPEN, and yes, for some time now. Just reporting this because no one has.
- Some trails north of I-70 still have lingering snow by mid July.
- NOTE - Nice one Eric! Trail update delays do indeed occur. Bushducks love getting lost out on trails. LOL! :)

- North Fork S. Arkansas Road is OPEN all the way to Billings Lake. Trail is easy going for less modified vehicles.
- Well worth the hike up to Island Lake, your classic high altitude blue-water lake, as against the Billings Lake where moose stroll right across the shallow swamp-like lake. The former Jeep trails that climbed up past 'Pride of the West Mine' to Island Lake have been closed off to vehicles for many years. Enjoy the hike!
- Those with a keen eye, a tracker's eye, will spot a rugged forgotten route which connected a series of mines up and over between Billings Lake and Upper Pomeroy Lake on the Saint Elmo side. The days of connecting to the north are now long gone. Time to lace up the hiking boots!
Beware of many ungated mine adits/shafts.

- OPEN! Drove Boreas Pass Road from Como to Breckenridge on June 22nd in two SUVs (Toyota 4 Runner and Lexus LX). The road is open the entire way.
- Road was completely dry and passable. It was a bit "washboardy" and rocky on a few miles here and there, but nothing that a standard SUV or careful car driver could not handle. There is no significant grade on this road as it was a former railroad bed.
- Very pretty drive and the Park County brochure with descriptions of the various historic milestones is quite interesting.

3/18/22 - Courtesy of Dillon Ranger District.
- Boreas Pass CR 10 is CLOSED to all wheeled motor vehicles, over snow vehicles, mountain bikes and e-bikes. OHVs are not permitted on this road.

- In 2021 Boreas Pass was open by early May. Trail fully open photo on CO PASS FB page 2021.

- This trail is really washed out this year, very narrow through the trees towards the top.
- Took 12 Jeeps in this trail and most everyone touched a fender or two. If you're concerned about scuffs and scrathes you probably don't want to go on this trail.
- We took the side trail out to Mt Wise, stopping at the cabin perched at the top. It is sadly deteriorating further every year. Then lunched with (not on) a herd of 20 goats. A big storm came in on us with lots of spectacular lightening, so we hurried on up the last climb of Garibaldi Gulch Road, to join Saints Johns Road FSR 275.1 briefly, and then high-tailed it down Montezuma-Deer Creek Road FSR 5.1. Latter road is in good shape with no issues.

6/23/22 - Courtesy of Tyler K.
- Having left North Swan Road 354.1 and you ascend Garibaldi Gulch Road FSR 356.1, there is a tree that may hinder some vehicles due to height restrictions approximately 50 yards from intersection with FSR 354.1. The tree is laying angled.
- NOTE, when you continue up Garibaldi Gulch and have passed the short spur trail out to Wise Mtn Cabin, then continuing up the crest from Wise Mountain, there is a "Y" in the trail. The right side, upper side, is blocked by snow, but the left being the lower side is clear to the top to take you on thru to intersect with Saints John Road FSR 275.1 at 12,440 ft. St John is also OPEN all the way.

- Hagerman Pass remains OPEN all the way.
- NOTE: Remember your capabilities! We were driving an Xterra S, with slight lift, stock tires. We were going to try to go all the way but time, weather (threatening rainstorms), a rocky section about 1/4 mile long, and I mean ROCKS, plus 4 ply tires and being solo... well we turned back at that point. I think we were about a mile past the Midland Trail sign.

6/23/22 - Courtesy of John C. :)
- Hagerman Pass is OPEN all the way in both directions.
- There is a large snow bank at 11,900 ft. on the trail that has been cut through and has melted down to bare earth at 39.262559,-106.478362

6/8/22 - Courtesy of trail-driver Don H.
- From the Leadville side Hagerman Pass Road becomes unpassable to 4WD vehicles (motorcycles might brave the extreme edges) at N39.269640 W106.454310 at 11,360 ft. This is at the last switchback before heading due west, just before approx .7mile east of Skinner Hut and the last mile to the summit of the pass.
- Up to this final switchback on the Leadville / Lake County side, the road is clear and dry. One bad washout a half mile below that needs a careful angle.
- Above 11,360 ft. the road is blocked by consecutive sections of drifted snow. Vehicle tracks indicate where someone tried and backed out. Motorcycles might find a path on the edges, but I only walked 1/2 mile through the drifts so cannot testify to the conditions at the hut, or summit. Melting rapidly though!

- I drove as far as the SW Massive trailhead #1487 / #1776. No issues, a couple of small puddles. The crux 0.5 mile from the trailhead is no worse (and no better) than previous years.
- The crux 0.5 miles from the trailhead needs a careful line and good clearance. No problem in a stock JKUR, but best with the sway bar disconnected.
** The creek was pretty high (no doubt crossable), so I didnt cross (anticipating that the section further up where the road is basically the creek bed would be very slow).

- I drove the full pass Friday afternoon, Hancock Pass Road and Hancock Pass Jeep Trail FSR 266. The earlier mentioned snow closure on FSR 299 at 11,880 is doable if you stay in the tracks.
- However, the west Alpine Tunnel Road FSR 839 is currently CLOSED due to rock scaling associated with the Palisades Wall trail repairs so you can not get through to Pitkin.

- A group of people daringly lowered a dirt bike down the snow embankment with the aid of ropes. Not a task for a lone rider!

- Remember - if it's closed, it's closed!

On Ouray side, take the lower road by Camp Bird Mine at N37.97532 W107.72190 and join thru to Imogene Pass Road FSR 869. This route is passable but requires a spotter and is a bit scary. Vehicle slides to the edge as you cross.

- Medano Pass Primitive Road is OPEN all the way. Damaged spots have been repaired by NPS and NFS.
- The sand pit was nicely packed due to dampness of the sand. The air pump at the west end of the trail was not working so remember to bring your own air compressor to refill your tires.

6/20/22 - Courtesy of Rich B. & Grand Sand Dunes NP.
- Medano Pass Primitive Road is FULLY OPEN all the way over the pass. All 21 campsites are accessible by 4WD vehicle.
- Sand sections of the trail are somewhat more firm due to recent rain. Reducing tire pressure to 20 psi might not be necessary for some vehicles.
- As per usual, the air station at the southern entrance of the road is available to refill tires. NOTE - if you reduce tire pressure and continue past the sand section into the rocky roadbed of Medano Canyon, you WILL NEED YOUR OWN compressor to refill your tires to reduce potential damage your tires.
- Creek crossings are low due to dry regional conditions and low snowpack. Keep in mnd, thunderstorms may temporarily boost flow.

6/18/22 - Courtesy of Nathan D. :)
- Trail RE_OPENED all the way.
- Trail is open but rough. They are still cleaning up from the storms that had previously closed this road. They have filled in everything that was washed out and removed all the trees blocking the roads.

- Medano Pass Primitive Road remains CLOSED between Creek Crossing 4 to the top of the pass.
- CLOSURE MAP.
- Temporary closure in place on the southern entrance of the road at Creek Crossing 4 , 37.808393N - 105.479775W, just north of the Herard family 1870s homestead site. Also gate closure in place at Medano Pass coming the other direction from Highway 69. Trail will remain Closed until the park can assess the damage from a late May snowstorm that caused deep erosion of the road and large sinkholes due to runoff resulting in unsafe travel on the road.
- The park does not have a projected date for opening but staff will keep visitors updated on the parks webpage and social media outlets.
- The road remains OPEN from the south to Creek Crossing 4, providing access to ten 4WD first-come/first-serve campsites equipped with bear boxes and fire rings.
- As per usual, four-wheel drive, high clearance vehicles are required beyond, to the north of, Point of No Return parking lot at 37.758102N, -105.501282W.

** Yes, Mosquito Pass is OPEN to dirt bikes.
- We completed Mosquito Pass from Leadville to Alma on dual sport bikes today. I think we were the first through. There is a 20 yard snow drift at 12,674 feet just above the highest mine on the Alma side.
- Motorcycles can get through with some work. We stomped down the deeper snow to hard pack and then rode over the 20 yard snow drift with zero tire pressure.
** NOTE: Dual track vehicles will not get through the current snow drift, they have to wait a week or two or try to shovel through.

7/6/22 - Courtesy of trail-rider Steve S. :)
- Mosquito is now OPEN from the Alma side also, via CR 12.
- We passed the last remaining snow field today on 4 dirt bikes. The snow field is just below the peak, about half mile down, on the East side that is.
** NOTE - The trail up from the east side may still be impassable for 4 wheeled vehicles. Be prepared to turn back!

** Mosquito Pass is OPEN to top of the pass from Leadville side via CR 3 at present.
- The trail may still be unpassable to the Alma side. Having been blocked above the false summit above North London Mine, per earlier report and photos in from trail-rider Josh B on 5/11/22.

- From Leadville, the west side, mostly dry until about a mile from the Diamond Mine, where the road is partially covered with melting snow. Much deeper (8+ inches) packed but slushy snow 1/4 mile from the mine - so before the 4wd section even begins.

The rock should be able to be moved easily. The drift is covering 1/3 of the road and might be drivable or shoveled. It is not very long 10ft.

- FSR 109 is CLOSED by a large downed tree shortly after (100 yards) after the winter gate.
- Trail was clear and dry, but was blocked by a recently downed tree just 100 yards in from the winter gate. Maybe a kind soul with a chainsaw and a winch can clear the tree.

- Pearl Pass is OPEN for 2022 as of today!
- I drover to Pearl Pass today, from the Aspen side. Someone came over from Crested Butte earlier today, and drove downhill across the last snowfield which is covering the road at 12,265ft.
- I wasn't able to go uphill across the snow at 38.984889, -106.828578 until I chained up the truck and carefully crept the hundred or so yards of snow which remains making the track a challenge, but trafficable.
- Photos of Pearl Pass today, clear of snow, and the lower snowfield challenge on Bushducks CO PASS FB page.

7/2/22 Courtesy of Carl Buckingham.
** The trail is OPEN from Aspen right up to a snow blockade at the second switchback above the Wilson-Green and Tagert huts. This is at 11,720 ft., at 38.998500, -106.840024.
- Plan ahead so you can make a safe turn around before encountering the snowbank.
- I dug through the previous snow pile to allow access to a good place to turn my truck around, one turn before Bushducks FB photo of July 2, 2022.
- REMINDER: We all need to be accountable for our actions in the high country. Carl met two Forest Service employees who indicated that they would be making a presence in the area this year, and writing tickets for any violations in the high country.
- There hasn't been any law enforcement in the last three years. Summer 2022 is an opportune time to demonstrate we all value the high country. Stay the Trail & respect the high country flora and fauna.
- Watch this space, melting space.... yet don't expect the trail to open fully for some time yet.

7/1/22 - Courtesy of Aspen-Sopris Ranger District.
- Pearl Pass, gate only, is OPEN.
- No further update from the ranger on the status of the trail suggests the trail is still blocked by snow.

5/20/22 - Courtesy of White River NF.
- Trail is closed to snow.
- In 2020 Pearl Pass opened by Willys and Jeeps on July 23.

- Trail is a little skinny in places above the tree line but not too bad. Had 4 stock Jeeps with us and no problems.
- Suggest trail-drivers do not air down in Montezuma, as you may find residents come out and yell at you. As an FYI, and a courtesy to residents, we use Peru Creek parking lot for airing.

- Kerr Lake Road (FSR #257) is impassable due to numerous downed trees.
- The district sent staff up there today to determine the extent of the situation and to develop a plan to get the road opened up. Until the road is properly cut out, we do not recommend travelling on it as it could result in damage to your vehicle, the natural resources or both. We will update when we get all the trees removed or the road becomes drivable with no obstacles.

6/23/22 - Courtesy of Tyler K.
- North Swan Road FSR 354.1 is OPEN all the way.
- After you cross the creek and start to ascend Garibaldi Gulch Road up FSR 356.1, there is a tree that may hinder some vehicles due to height restrictions approximately 50 yards past the creek. The tree is laying angled.
- Also, when you continue up FSR 356.1 and have passed the short spur trail to Wise Mt Cabin, then continuing up the crest from Wise Mountain, there is a "Y" in the trail. The right side, upper side is blocked by snow, but the left being the lower side is clear to the top to take you on thru to intersect with Saints John Road FSR 275.1 at 12,440 ft.

- Trail is OPEN on Tincup (town,) Taylor Park side of the pass to around N38.72029 W106.43963 at 11,700 ft. elevation.
- All previous vehicle tracks stop at this point. It is all untracked snow above this. Looks like solid snow from here to the top of the pass.
- There are some significant lingering snow drifts starting around 10,700ft. They are tracked enough that a stock non-locker 3rd gen 4Runner with good tires can pass. Snow drifts higher up would not have been passable without prior tracks which were about tire height deep.
- As per usaul, Mirror Lake at 10,960ft. is mildly flooding the road, less than 6" at this stage.
- Bonus to Tincup Pass travelers - Frenchy's Cafe on the Pond is scheduled to OPEN its door for 2022 in early June!

- Webster Pass Road FSR 285.1 from Montezuma, remains OPEN to the Pass. Water crossing is deep.
** NOTE - You cannot proceed down Handcart Gulch.
- Still no access to the Pass via Handcart Gulch FSR 121 due to snow bank.

- I was on my 4 wheeler and husband and son on their bikes. We got about 3/4 of the way up. Just above tree line. We broke through 1 snow drift but the next one was too big. I would be shocked if it opens up at the top. Still a lot Of snow up there.
- Trail was fairly dry except near creek run off and crossings.

6/10/22 - Courtesy of Josh Bartels.
- I tried Webster again, some SxS made it up further than I was willing. Creek too deep to cross with anything but a boat and they turned back as well.

- Webster Pass remains CLOSED.
- See CO PASS FB Page contributor Josh Bartels' photo of locked gate at Montezuma end.

- Drove the pass in a 2-door Jeep JK with a 3.5" lift and 35s, but none of that is needed, as this trail is fine for a stock SUV or even something like a Subaru wagon if driven with care.
- Some washboard on the east side of the pass (CR-22) but nothing major.
- Overall trail is in good shape and easy to drive. West side is a bit rockier than the east side.
- NOTE: Because of the closure on US-285, when coming from the Denver area, you can take CR-5 to get to CR-22 on the East side of the pass if running it east to west instead of taking the posted detour.

7/15/22 Courtesy of Rich B.
- FYI we drove a Stock Xterra S with a 2 inch lift.
- We ran Weston Pass East to West. Hwy 285 is closed from Fairplay to Antero Junction due to bridge construction, just a snitch north of the Weston Pass road. HOWEVER, from the south you can drive all the way to the road closure point and then take the Weston Pass Road. From the north you would have to take a few county roads to get from the next road heading west down to Weston Pass road, but it is doable.
- The pass itself is in decent condition, not too bad even without airing down. Watch for dispersed campers on the west side as there are a lot of them.

- Trail is OPEN all the way.
- Took 18 Jeeps up to the lake. The 3 main obstacles are in the usual condition. The trail leading up to the lake has gotten considerably rougher over the years, so be prepared for a rough ride.
- The obstacles are fun with different lines for most any type of challenge you like. You might consider doing the obstacles and turn around beforehand if you don't want the rough ride.
- Bowling Ball hill right before the lake, trail is loose, couple of rigs had to use lockers to get up. Great trail overall!
