Description

Snow Pass is one of the easiest-to-access high passes in the Gore Range. The whole trip is fantastic, but the views (not to mention the fact that it's all downhill from there) makes Snow Pass the best part.

Half-Day Hike: Access is from the Deluge or Gore Lake trails, either of which is from the East Vail trailhead.
