CO- Los Pinos Pass

Los Pinos Pass is Spanish for Ďthe pine trees.í This is an easy trail that is useful if you are looking for a way to get from the Sawatch Range over to the San Juan Mountains without hitting the pavement. The Hayden Survey crossed this 10,200 foot pass back in 1874 and Otto Mears built the Saguache and San Juan toll road over the pass the same year.

Starting from US 50 in Doyleville, the trail starts out heading through relatively flat range land. Watch out for cattle in this section. This trail passes by Tomichi Dome and then crosses Colorado 114 before starting the gradual climb to the Pass. Shortly after the pass, itís a short drive to Cathedral Junction, and then to Colorado 149 where you can head to either Lake City or Creede.

This trail is easy itís entire way, and any high clearance vehicle should have no problems navigating itís length. There are also a number of excellent camping locations closer to Cathedral Junction.
