trail locations for Dillon, Colorado

I really loved this trail. Beautiful views of the reservoir the whole way up. Enough elevation gain to begin to get your heart pumping, while still being relaxing. Our dogs loved it. Would be a great option for visitors. Trail is west facing so it was still very dry on a sunny day in November, where there was plenty of snow lingering down on Main Street. Highly recommended!

A little snow up there on 11/15/2016, but it is in good condition. That will likely change tomorrow, as storms and much colder temps are coming in. Its a beautiful hike from the pass, get there early and during the week if possible, to avoid crowds.

Gorgeous and quite. Steep incline for the first 10 mins. Runs along side a river. It's not well travelled hence the path can be a bit hard to find after a mile. If you keep going, you will not be disappointed though.

Just got done with the Webster Pass Trail from Montezuma to Jefferson. I have a large 1982 Dodge Ram 2500 4WD that had no problems what so ever with the terrain. The only problem was coming down the exposed South side of the pass. The truck only had a about 6 inches of clearance each side with one of those being a steep 200ft drop off. I'm happy not navigating this section ever again. Especially when wet from a passing snow fall. From what I saw I would not listen to the people on here saying you don't need 4WD. Maybe, just maybe, on the perfect day it'd be possible in a mid clearance car but don't risk it. Rain/Snow is very common and can make the downhill slippery and very dangerous. If starting in Montezuma over Webster Pass I'd suggest taking Georgia Pass back Northbound and making it a loop.

Nice, relaxing hike with beautiful views!

This GPX is wrong. It depicts a a couple of switch backs just before the intersection with Radical Hill. This section has been closed and bull-dozed. The trail actually continues straight, past Radical Hill to Saints John and Middle Fork Swan.

Nice and manageable for a beginner!

Great little hike today. the views were very nice. Loved seeing the fall colors. We didn't do the whole trail since we didn't start till 3:30pm. Would recommend!

Loads of false summits made a challenging hike!

I love this trail for the majestic views and the fantastic opportunities to observe pikas (my favorite Rocky Mountain critter!). Once you get past the people taking pictures with the continental divide sign, you nearly always have the trail entirely to yourself. It's fun to just set out and go as far as you feel like going on this trail. Nonstop views, great workout, and of course, adorable pikas!

rating this trail as easy borders on criminal. long steep climb. steep pitches over roots and loose rocks. numerous unmarked intersections. steep tight switchbacks. not 5 stars either since half the ride is on roads.

A short easy walking for all. The view of Dillon lake from the top is so peaceful and picture perfect.

Amazing place to do hiking with your dogs. It's hard at the beginning due to elevation, but you can take breaks all over the way. Excellent view, worth the effort.
