Directions from Silverthorne: Drive 12 miles north Highway 9 to the Ute Pass Road. Follow this road to the large parking area just west of the cattle guard at the top of the pass. The trail heads southerly across a small open park. If unable to locate the trial follow the steel fence post markers. Leave the gate locked due to cattle grazing in the area.

There are two potential Ute pass trails. The trailhead at the top is clearly marked with parking at the top of Ute Pass, about 5 miles up from hwy 9. That is the trail I took with stunning views of Gore range. Just used yak tracks and poles. Up, up, up for the first part. Windy at view point.
The directions for the other trail does have parking and a cattle guard a little lower than this one but we missed that part. Next time!
