|Trailhead:||Yankee Boy Basin (San Juan)|
|Date of Information:||01/12/2010|
Road is plowed to the right fork past the Sneffles townsite. Actually it is plowed further up the road to Virginius Pass, past where you would turn off for Sneffels. However, the shelf section of Yankee Boy is almost impassable by vehicles due to a large stretch of ice on the road, some 4wd w/ chains were unable to get through. So you can drive to the shelf and then walk a plowed road to the snow closure, where you leave the main road and go up the valley to the right.
