Road to Guanella Pass TH open?

Postby joshbrink » Sun Oct 06, 2013 10:12 am

I am from out of state and looking if any one has current information on the road up to Guanella Pass TH from Georgetown. I looked at the TH update but nothing was very recent. I have a friend who is thinking of doing Beirstadt tomorrow. Thank you

No reasons for it to be closed.

Ok. Thank you. I wasn't sure if it had a winter closure or not. Just wanted to make sure before I sent my friends there.

Speaking of Bierstadt, has anyone been up since the storm? Conditions?

Just did Bierstadt with a friend today. A little icy in the morning, had my spikes with me but didn't take it out. Lower part of the trail became muddy after 11 am. The creek crossing was easier than a couple weeks ago. Very doable and quite a few people were on the trail.

BTW, the toilet at the TH ran out of TP, probably due to the gvt shutdown, be prepared :)
