Pretty solid drive, I got stuck in the snow twice because I am an idiot. That being said we used the trail network to get to St. Mary’s. Snowpack there is pretty firm, taste 7/10, texture 8/10. Some of it definitely had a distinct Cheesecake Factory smell, but that might have just been the mink poop.

Easy road, lots of great views, we did it into the night and was still very fun

Super easy for a Jeep, mostly just good views, there’s a couple spots along the way to pull off and check everything out.

Drive this last weekend in my stock JK rubicon. Made it 5-6 miles in before the snow became too much for the Jeep. Definitely need to come back once it melts, I only saw people with snowmobiles out there when I went so mid November is too late in the season for my Jeep.

Beautiful views! I brought my dog to hike and she loved it- we met several other people with dogs too who were all very friendly. I didn’t wish I had snow shoes until the end when I started sinking in waist deep snow and my dog started disappearing completely under the snow- it was moderately challenging but well worth it!

My buddy and I took our trucks up here. Had a great time. I’d say the trail is moderate but there is one section that is very technical. Right next toe Quartz Hill. The right side was tough for my friend without lockers. He ended up breaking an islet arm. My Raptor did just fine.

Beautiful! Relaxing, adventurous!

We really enjoyed this hike. We encountered only one other trail user. We used winter hiking boots with crampons. This was sufficient to make it all of the way to the end of the trail. No need for snowshoes or backcountry skis today. It snowed throughout our hike and was windy, especially when nearing the lake at the end. There's a waterfall flowing into the lake which isn't frozen over yet. A thin layer of ice currently coats most of the lake. A standard car with good all season tires can make it to the foot of the trailhead.

About 3.5 miles from the summit parking lot the road turns to ice right as the Rogers Pass sign comes into view. Bring a friend and a winch or chain up if you plan on going past the gate at the bottom of the trussel. I had a fox sniffing my tires as I was writing this :)

Best trail I’ve been to by far! I didn’t finish the trail since my puppy started to get car sick but I’ll be going back to finish it!

Stock Wrangler JLU up and down with ease in 4wd High at the end of summer. Fun trail with great rewards; more to explore in Jeep and on foot. Nonmotorized use allowed year round according to gate’s sign in the AllTrails photos, Sean D, but it also says no parking at the gate.

Question - can you still hike to the lake with the gates officially closed?

closed for the season as of Oct 18, 2018. disappointed. I took my stock Raptor up, zero issues... not even close to breaking a sweat. With a stock half ton truck, you will likely bottom out in a few spots, especially the first rut. Subarus won't make it without damage, end of story. looked promising but the gate was closed about 3/4 mile up. tight turn around.

Great off road trail for beginners or advanced. For the two very hard spots there is also an option to go around them.
Several good camping areas, a few peaks to view from some lookout points, and a couple cool spots to explore on foot.
Went Oct 13th and almost got snowed in while camping. Feel lucky to have made it out honestly. Forecast not accurate.

Amazing views! First time driving this road. Made the whole trek from Breck to Como. Was a bit worried at first as my SUV is only front wheel drive but it handled the snow (couple of inches) and mud without a problem. Next time I make the trip, I think I’ll start the trip at Como to be able to take in the sunset behind Breck and have dinner and drinks in town when it’s over.

Really fun trail, not for beginners though. Lift, skid plates and rock sliders are a must, as there are lots and lots of very big rocks. The lake is very beautiful. Lockers are helpful if you are more adventurous and want to go for the harder lines, but can be completed without. This trail is also wide enough for full size trucks.

Super easy trail. A Subaru Outback could run it. Great views of the continental divide. Dispersed camping is a plus. As of November 2018 it's probably covered in a few feet of snow.

Hiked the whole road, though most people opted to off-road in vehicles. Pretty and scenic; the waterfall at the lake was beautiful. It started snowing while I was there and the fall colors looked beautiful with it.

Hiked the trail near Georgetown on an 8 hour layover on our vacation. It was cloudy and sleety, but it was the best layover we have ever experienced.

Beautiful trail. A little tricky in some spots. Very rocky. Nice fall drive.

Not sure why this is rated moderate. It's pretty easy for any 4x4. Did pretty much all of it in 2 wheel. Only need a little bit of clearance for the rocks. Great views, and only saw one other person on a Wednesday afternoon. 4/5

We did two hikes, one close to Georgetown and another one at the end of the trail. Both were great, but we enjoyed more the second one, walking very close to the river.

Great trail, perfect time of year to see aspen leaves change. Only downside is that there are lots of horse droppings on trail.

Loch Lomond is a classic that's easy to get to. The trail is very bumpy but is easy. Once at the top the views are fantastic. Not a lot of Aspens but the bushes turn yellow and it's still very nice to look at haha. If you'd like to see a video of the run I have one up at:

Great trail in Polaris Ranger Crew 570-4! Love the scenery (old trestles). Need off-road capability to get to end of trail (before closed tunnel).

This is a beautiful trail that gets increasingly more difficult. Most of the trail I traveled was slow going, bumpy and rocky with a few sections that had me wondering but wasnt bad after doing it. There are little off shoots and trails that look fun but not many places to park and enjoy. Up until Pisgah Spur most 4x4 vehicles will be alright, however, right before there and at that section you will certainly need a more serious jeep. I could not get past that section and had to back up down the hill and thats when I got in trouble. I got stuck and had to be rescued. I was very lucky to have cell service and called Co 4x4 Rescue. They are life savers. 2.5 hours later they showed up with a convoy of jeeps in the dark and bailed me out. Needless to say I felt really stupid that day. Lifted F350. Keep this on you... 4x4 Rescue... 720.722.1204.
