Have you missed hiking the Ute Trail? Have no fear, because it could be open by the end of January! Better get your hiking boots ready!

The Ute Trail has been closed for several months, but it will soon be ready for you to enjoy the incredible views.

Your hike will start at the Ute Crossing Trailhead in the Rocky Mountain National Park, where you will enjoy breathtaking views. The best part is that you will not have to do a lot of climbing. I enjoy hiking as long as it doesn’t have aggressive uphill climbs, which is something you don’t have to worry about with this trail.

You’ll walk above the tree lines, allowing for gorgeous views of the surrounding scenery.

You’re probably wondering why the trail has been closed since fall of last year. There was a thunderstorm with a lightning strike that made it unsafe for hiking. The repairs have been made and the trail will be opening soon.

Here’s some fun facts about the Ute Trail:

  • The roundtrip length is 4 miles
  • The elevation is 11,430 feet
  • The trail difficulty rating is easy

Get your hiking gear and get ready for a beautiful, fun and easy hike!
