Details

The Gold Dust Trail runs from just north of Como in South Park up to Boreas Pass.  About half way it is intersected by County Rd 50 making a convenient TH for access up to the pass without having to start way back at Como.  We begin at that "upper" TH and climb toward Boreas Pass.  The leader recently visited the TH and observed untouched and great snow with beautiful surroundings - lots of snowy peaks (Mt Silverheels rises just to the west) but wonderfully no avalanche terrain on the route.  This trip is exploratory to the trip leader and we will do our best to get to the pass but no promises.  According to a local the trail is marked with blue diamonds and we will also have a GPS track.



This may seem like a long way from Denver but the drive time is the same as that from north Denver to RMNP.
