The county plowed out an extra wide berth on the main road to park only a few meters from the actual TH.

For the first 1/2 mile, someone had attempted to drive the road! Combined with the recent snowshoers, the first 1/2 mile has a pretty good track.

After that, there is a continuing snowshoe track for probably another 1.5 miles.
Past that, there is only my boot track (I didn‘t take snowshoes) all the way to Antero.

Snow is not deep. Snowshoes might be handy in a few spots, but leave them home. Just lace up the gaiters extra tight. The creek crossing is sadly, melting out.

The boot pack trail should be easy to follow.

Plowed how far?

Just out of curiosity, was the road plowed to the 2WD trailhead at 9,400 feet, or all the way to the 4WD trailhead at 12,000 feet?

They don't plow to the 4x4 TH. Baldwin Gulch is a rough off-road Jeep trail. They only plow to the 2wd. But walking the road goes surprisingly quick!
