Weminuche Pass to Stony Pass-CDT Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"If you’ve hiked from Wolf Creek Pass to this point, you’ve seen some of the most wonderful parts of the Weminuche Wilderness. Continue hiking to Stony Pass, and you’ll witness spectacular scenes, see-forever views, high mountain lakes, wildlife, and wildflowers.

Hikers must camp at least 200 feet from West Ute Lake; campfires are not permitted. In addition, livestock must be kept 200 feet away from the lake. The trail is easy to follow in most places, but difficult to follow in other places. The CDT is above the tree line much of the way, so watch for late-afternoon thunderstorms. Snow can be deep in places as late as July."
