Details

We plan to snowshoe for 2 miles following the snow covered Guanella Pass road to the parking lot for Mt Bierstadt.  Half the hike is through woods and the rest is above timberline.  There are great views.  The snow is likely to be soft so snowshoes may be necessary to minimize post holing. Micro spikes might be good if the snow is frozen solid.  



 



Alternative hike if the wind is high:  Leavenworth Creek trail is all in the woods and is 1500 ft. lower.  This trail starts at a scenic viewing overlook pull out  about 2.7 miles up Guanella pass Road from Georgetown.  The distance and elevation gain is about the same.
