Explore the most popular snowshoeing trails near Dillon with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Amazing views--especially from the top. Few small areas of snow to cross--but done easily. First 1/2 mile intense, but levels out after that.

Boring trail. Might be good for mountain biking, but it's not very good as a hiking trail. It's very open and you can hear the noise from the highway.

June 10 2018, still snowed over on the trail in a few key places, lots of traffic but most drop out after the first or second climb.

Altitude is rough at first but the hike is beautiful. Views the whole way!

Fantastic views and super close to the highway so it was a great way to break up our drive back to the city.

Very windy but worth it. Amazing views from the start and they just get better.

Be ready for intense winds and still crossing a few snow fields. The view from the ridge line is beautiful if you can handle the gusts. The parking lot is heavily used by back-country skiers, so get there early if you want a spot. There have also been many recent spring avalanches along Loveland pass, so keep your eyes out while driving as well.

Slushy snow pack and mud made the hike slightly harder than it would on a dry spring/early summer day.

To avoid any parking tickets or being towed I parked at Peru Creek trail head about a mile north of town this will add 2 miles to your day. Hike up St. John’s road was pretty basic and snow packed about a mile up after some searching you will find Hunkidori Mine trail ( no markings for this ). Trail had not been used much and snow was soft we really needed snow shoes, even though we accepted the challenge and went on after 3 miles we had not made it all the way and decided to turn around based on continued post holing. Even with snow shoes I would rate this as average hike not a lot to see unless you are into trees, trees, and more trees! Town of Montezuma is cute and drive out US 6 up loveland pass is always a must see! Hope this helps be safe ✌

You know how the previous reviews mentioned “don’t sleep on the wind?” Yeah, well, do not! Staggering views from the start that keep getting better. No protection from elements, which only adds to the fun.

Outstandingly beautiful trail, but seriously gusty/dangerous winds at the summit. I do not recommend hiking it alone, as I needed to hold on to someone to make sure I was not blown over. Microspikes not needed.

Great views, but make sure you layer up. HEAVY winds and temps below freezing now

Pretty easy. Scenic view of the reservoir. No shelter and ideal for mountain biking.

Truly a 5 star trail. On a Wednesday afternoon in September, I literally had the entire trail to myself. One thing to note, I clocked it at more like 9 miles than the 7 miles listed.

Incredible views all the way to the top. It was pretty windy though, so it would probably be a good idea to bring some earmuffs.

Amazing views! The first .5 mile is pretty steep but it levels out after that. Worth every step.

Beautiful views all around! There were some steep inclines, but nothing too hard to make it.

This trail starts off very steep but tapers off a bit when you reach treeline. Didn't make it to the saddle, will have to go back to do that.

Trail begins off Peru Creek and travels through pines and aspens emerging on the shoulders of Lenawee Mountain. Above the tree line, the trail rises to the rock formations from which beautiful views of historic Montezuma, Dillon Lake and surrounding ranges can be viewed.

Spectacular views all along this ridge top hike. There's a huff and puff climb from 12k to 12.5k ft in the beginning but it levels off after that. We could see Arapaho Basin and Keystone from the top. It was windy and chilly in August.

very good trail for MTN biking, beautiful hike as well, just be cognizant of turns at the beginning miles or u will end up hiking up a service Rd...but beautiful nonetheless

Good hike once you find the trailhead. Nice river sound the whole way and some nice clearings once you get in 30-40 min.

The trailhead is actually another 1/4 mile east (a little shoulder area big enough for 4 cars at most) of where it takes you from the app. Trailhead is buried in the woods a bit but once you pull in you can see it.

Hard to find the trailhead. Very limited parking. Incredibly steep first 10 minutes but then evens out, although the trail feels overgrown at this point and was difficult to find after about a mile and a half.

We could only go a few miles in due to heavy snow covering the trail, past our knees in some areas. By there were incredible views and can't wait to go back later in the summer. The gate was also closed at he parking area off the road, so we had to walk 1.25 miles to the trail head. We did, however, see a moose grazing on our way back to the car.

Hiked this one yesterday.

I like this trail it's a good quick uphill at the beginning then rolls a little. We went up at the beginning of June and there was still a lot of snow but nothing you can't walk through. The river was running and made for a gorgeous view. We only saw one other couple on the trail and parking is Very limited! The location in the directions is not quite right, just keep going a little up the road, before you hit the run away truck ramp. There is probably parking for 3 or 4 cars.
