Mount Antero and Browns Lake Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"No other trail in this book gives the sensation of being so high. You need not drive all the way to the top to enjoy yourself. Except for the last half mile, the road surface is not difficult but the trail is extremely narrow above timberline. Several of the switchbacks are very tight and require backing up to make the turns.

The end of the trail nears 14,000 feet, so adequate power and low range are absolutely necessary. Extremely narrow shelf road with tight switchbacks. Small SUVs with low-range gearing and high clearance can drive all but last half mile to top of Mt. Antero. Experienced drivers only. Snow melts late."

This trail is incredible. I didn't 4x4, but rather hiked it. I did run into a lot of ATVs on the trail. I'm looking forward to coming back to Mtn Bike the trail.
