Hard to believe it’s early February outside, eh? With temperatures and conditions more like late spring, Gunnison Trails would like to remind trail users to tread lightly and avoid muddy trails at Hartman Rocks. We have received loads of observations saying trail conditions are extremely muddy out at Hartmans.

The early morning hours before 9am are ok, as the ground is still frozen, but once it starts warming up, the trails turn sloppy quick. Please respect this amazing resource and avoid using the trails until we get more snow, or things completely thaw out.

The good news is that the trails in both Salida and Montrose are good to go. Thanks for all of the observations, and for helping to preserve our trails.
