Ouray Colorado: Current Status for 4WD and Jeep Roads

Posted by Karen Avery on Fri, Jun 03, 2011 @11:05 AM

Current Status: October 18, 2011

Due to the recent snowfall in the upper country, all four wheel drive trails above 10,000 feet are snow packed and icy. Fall colors are still in bloom in much of the lower country although many of the aspen have begun to shed their leaves in preparation for winter. Trails like Last Dollar are especially beautiful this time of year, however please remember to use caution, as muddy trails can be quite hazardous.
