Yo T. on Avalanche Lake Trail
dogs are currently not allowed and the locals are pretty serious about enforcing
We never even made it to the trailhead. In the "getting there" section describing this hike, the road description of "a fairly difficult 4 wheel drive road with some steep drop offs" should be rewritten. It is NOWHERE near an easy place to get to. The road is badly rutted & uneven, rocks jutting everywhere, steep incline, teeth rattling, gut wrenching ride. Be forewarned. The hike may be terrific but getting there could potentially do damage to your vehicle.
Emily M. on Red Hill/Mushroom Rock trail
Quick trail for an evening! Great views of Carbondale & Mt Sopris!
