Wintertime in the Colorado Rockies can be a very playful time. With snowfall typically plentiful, snow-mobilers will find our forests inviting. We have some of the best snowmobiling in the state. Imagine yourself on a top-rated machine with no crowds, great snow, fresh air, powder-filled meadows and spectacular views as far as the eye can see.
For an overview of the territory, view the zoomable Rio Grande National Forest Visitor Map — Middle Region .
Trailheads are located on Hwy 17 near Cumbres and La Manga Passes. Download a US Forest Service overview map of Cumbres & LaManga Winter Recreation area that highlights snowmobiling and skiing areas.
Cumbres Pass North Trailhead #813: Located off State Highway 17 at the turnoff to Trujillo Meadows Reservoir on Cumbres Pass. The trailhead is approx. 150 yards west of Forest Road 118 just after turning off Highway 17.
In the snowy season, the trails are open for snowmobiling, cross country skiing and snow shoeing.
Snowmobiling is not allowed in Wilderness areas.
