Guanella Pass Trailhead

Postby kevink60 » Mon Mar 11, 2013 6:42 pm

Hi- what is the current accessibility to the Guanella Pass Trailhead by vehicle? Also, what are the snow conditions on Bierstadt at this time of year? Thanks :)

On the Guanella pass side, the winter closure is about 1.5 miles or so below the summer TH. It is a 30-60min skin to get to the top of the pass from there, where the summer TH for Bierstadt is. You can not go past the closure in a car, there is a gate. The other side is a bit longer. It will be like that for a while.
