The status of many popular high elevation 4x4 trails in Colorado is listed below and updated as the trails open or close. The list includes the main trails plus some 2wd access roads. The voluntary updates come from many sources, including the National Forest service, the BLM, and interested individuals. As the 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.

As a guide, you can view the dates and information from the 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, sometimes without warning. Use common sense, and do not go around closure barriers.

REMEMBER - TREAD LIGHTLY

5/24/16 - Access road off Guanella Pass Rd up switchbacks is open to Leavenworth Creek Rd/RR grade & Pavillion Point. We started up toward Waldorf and ran into snow about 2 miles up. LCR was in good condition, dry. We were in a 94 Jeep YJ, no chains or lockers. Probably could have pushed on further past the two mile point toward Waldorf but did not want to chance getting stuck. Others have already gone further but we did not walk to see how much further.

Bangs Canyon BLM Grand Junction Open 5/7/16
COMMENTS:
5/7/16 - The Bangs Canyon/ Tabeguache and Windmill Loop are both open. The Tabeguache is still closed (gated) at Hwy 141, so it is still in and out. The Grand Mesa Jeep Club did miles of trailside brush trimming. There is still 2 to 3 miles left to do. Some of the braiding has been blocked. The Tabeguache is treacherous if wet. Off camber to the low-side on bentonite.

Chaffee County 719-539-6961 Mostly Open 5/21/16
COMMENTS:
5/21/16 - 4x4 Adventure Group with 12 rigs traveled up this trail to just within 1 mile of the lake on 5/21/16. We winched through 2-3 feet of snow until the snow reached 3-5 feet deep just 1 mile before the lake. The road is moderately rocky, then progressively increases in snow drifts to the lake. We reached 11,005 feet before needing to go back due to snow drifts. Great camping is available in this area and can be reached with most 4x4 vehicles now that we have cut a path through the snow. Blocked by deep snow 1 mile before lake.
 
Bill Moore Lake Clear Creek 303-567-3000 Closed 4/30/16
COMMENTS:
4/30/16 - The trail is very snowpacked and only passable for a little ways. Our rigs had 42" tires, 37s, and 35s with chains. We were able to make it to the Chute with no issues. 2 out of the 3 of us had to winch around the left turn in the chute. We were able to continue 1.7 miles to the split with Miller Creek. After this, the snow is 6'-7' deep and off camber into the trees. Going to be a while before it is even attempt-able

Calamity Mesa BLM Grand Junction 303-239-3600 Open 5/21/16
COMMENTS:
5/21/16 - Calamity Mesa Loop is open. The Grand Mesa Jeep Club trimmed trailside brush where needed. Some of the named obstacles are still tough. The GateKeeper is particularly rough with large rocks in the channel that must be crawled over. Still a strong class 6+ trail.
4/17/16 - "Gatekeeper" obstacle is not for the faint of heart. Large rocks have moved again and are extremely difficult to crawl.

5/7/16 - Trail is open all the way through. Nothing too special to note other than we found a campground and fire that had been abandoned. Put out the fire and cleaned up the site near the creek. We had a little bit of snow/rain during our run but no one encountered anything too slick and no big mud.

COMMENTS:
4/24/16 - The Grand Mesa Jeep Club trimmed miles of trailside brush to help make this trail more "user friendly". There are still some tight spots. Two bypasses are still necessary where the trail is washed out. They are difficult to find. The obstacle at the top of the first shelf road will give you tight seat covers. Severe off camber and large rocks in the wash.

COMMENTS:
5/21/16 - Trail is open on all the parts we traveled, with no snow, and only a little standing water/mud. We did not travel the part of the trail north of Gold Hill, but from the condition of the rest, it is probably passable now. The trail is in great condition. A few places are washboarded, but overall, it is fine.
5/1/16 - Traveled from S to N. Its open except North of Gold Hill Road. Lots of snow but passable. Video shows conditions.

5/21/16 - Trail is open all the way. We traveled from 72 out to Sugarloaf Mountain (on 233a). We also traveled on 236 and 238. No snow on any of the trails, all were passable. The trail is in great condition. There is one mud pit on the left side as you head to Sugarloaf that looks like a 1 foot drop-in, but is actually about 20+ inches, so be careful there

COMMENTS:
5/14/16 - The trail is not open all the way to Spring Creek, Cascade Creek or to the top. The road is blocked by deep snow on the North Face of Saxon Mountain. You can travel up past the 2 rock slide areas on the Georgetown side of the mountain but once you round the turn on the Donnieville side you are stopped by deep snow. High Country 4x4 Adventure Group, with 13 vehicles made it up in 2.5 hours and then had to turn back down due to the blockage. It's still a great drive up but don't expect to make it through to connect with Cascade Creek or Spring Creek.

COMMENTS:
5/20/16 - Trail was fine most of the way. Seems like winter did some damage to the trail and it's rougher in spots than last season. We made it to just beyond the entrance to the hiking trails 701 and another. I dropped a pin here: 38.763919 -104.965132 The area beyond looked traveled but is now really icy. We decided it was safer to back up and head out. Stay the trail folks. Saw some surveyors, they may be looking to fill thone mudaipur pits we love so much. Looks like 2 more pita were there versus last season.

5/24/16 - "Top half very wet with trickling runoff. Thankfully the two washout areas are down the middle and can be carefully straddled. One, though has big exposed tree roots. My first time on this road. I have done Switzerland Trail nearly every year in April for last twenty plus years as a first season trial, but don't know why we never took this delightful short road.
5/21/16 - Trail is open all the way. You should only travel this trail uphill, as it is narrow and there aren't any places along it to turn around. Trail is in excellent condition. There is runoff coming down a lot of the rocky areas, but there is no snow on the trail and it has no washouts.

Sheep Creek BLM Mesa County   Open 5/15/16
COMMENTS:
5/15/16 - A dozer has removed some rockfalls and washouts that were a problem. The trail is in very good condition until the next rain settles the loose sand and the rocks come up again.
5/15/16 - Sheep Creek is open. Sheep Creek is open. There has been a dozer working all the way to the cliff. That part of the trail is temporarily smooth. One or two rains will change that.

5/8/16 - The gate is open, and the road has been plowed. We don't know how far up, but I'm assuming at least to the turn off for Yankee Boy. We stopped at the Notch, as we were out of time, but the road was in great shape to that point. In fact, a guy in a white chevy van drove by us on his way up.
 
Yankee Hill Arapaho/Clear Creek 303-567-3000 Partially Open 5/23/16
COMMENTS:
5/23/16 - Not open all the way yet. Running from Central City towards St. Marys you can make it about 5 miles until the snow is too deep to pass. There was a multi-vehicle extraction of a full size Chevy going on at the time we came to this spot. Trail is in otherwise good condition, a bit rougher than it has been in previous years. There is A LOT of trash along the trail for some reason- please bring a large trash bag and help pitch in by picking up some of this trash please.
