Passable and mostly clear of snow as of 6/15/20. A little rough in some spots (we were on dirt bikes).

We rode this trail in the summer of 2019 in a UTV. It has gotten rougher and we increased the rating to difficult. The route is pretty much the same until you get to the very top, where the road goes right and narrows. This part is no longer shown on the MVUM. This trail is combined with Mt. Antero in the ATV Guide to Colorado Central Mountains. See that trail for updates. For the most up-to-date information on this trail, see our new 4th Edition Guide to Colorado Backroads & 4-Wheel-Drive Trails,  released April 2019.
