All trails follow the national standard for signing and are marked with orange diamonds. It is important to remember that snow conditions vary considerably from trail to trail and year to year and it is best to check with a Forest Service office before taking off on your adventure.
It is also a good idea to purchase a USG topographic map and a copy of the San Juan Forest Map, and these are available in local bookstores, sporting good stores and the Forest Service Office in Dolores.
One of the special treats of snowmobiling in Mesa Verde Country® is the opportunity to view wildlife. A large population of elk and deer call the San Juan National Forest home. Please remember to respect wildlife and their habitat, as disrupting animals and chasing them may burn up precious resources they need this time of year.
Areas designated non-motorized are off limits to snowmobiles, and entry into these areas is subject to strict fines and other penalties. Please stay out of these areas, and enjoy the vast acreage that is available in Mesa Verde Country®!
Snow conditions vary yearly and by location. Please check conditions with the San Juan National Forest Service office, Dolores district, or the Colorado Welcome Center (970) 565-3414.
