Resolution Mountain

Monday, May 13, 2019

Alt Names

White River National Forest, Holy Cross Ranger District, Wearyman Road, Resolution Road, Red Cliff, Camp Hale Memorial Campground, Ptarmigan Pass, Hornsilver Mountain, Vail Pass Recreation Area, McCallister Gulch

Last Known StatusOpen

This long but scenic 4x4 route has some steep but gradual climbs but offers some great mountain and alpine meadow views. The trail system mainly consists of two forest service roads - Wearyman and Resolution Road. Wearyman is the northern access and eventually connects to Ptarmigan Pass which ties into Resolution Road, which heads in a southwestern direction.

Most of the trail is rugged and narrow but is wide enough for Jeeps and side by sides. Camping with nearby trail access can be found at Camp Hale Memorial Campground, which has 21 shady sites overlooking the Eagle River.

Nearby Colorado Backcountry Rentals offers unguided ATV rentals (rental rates include gas and helmets). During the winter months snowmobile and showshoe rentals are offered.
