The trek to Montgomery Pass is one of the most difficult in the splendid group of winter trails in the Cameron Pass area west of Fort Collins. A steep ascent to the pass rewards the nordic skier and snowshoer with a breathtaking panorama and extensive open terrain and snow-filled bowls to explore. Stay on the direct route to the pass to avoid any avalanche danger around timberline. The nordic skier may wish to use climbing skins for the ascent. Snowmobiles are very unlikely on this steep, narrow and winding trail.
