Music Pass Trailhead
Added by piper14er

Location:  Sangre de Cristo Range
Road Type:  Easy 4WD, good clearance recommended. 3   (0=Paved, 6=Very Difficult 4WD)
A few steeper sections but generally a gradual climb and fairly straight with only a few switchbacks.
Directions:  The turn from Highway 69 is the same as going to the South Colony Lakes (SCL)trailhead (CR 119)for Humboldt and the Crestones. It is 13 miles to the end of the road and the parking area below Music Pass. Music Pass is 1.25 miles farther along a trail. Take the left at the South Colony Lakes (CR 120) road and continue on CR 119. The road goes east then takes a 90 degree bend south. Follow the road as it goes generally goes south, across a cattle guard and then bends west. Follow the road until it ends at the parking area. It is approximately 7 miles from SCL.
Winter Access:  It would appear that the winter closure would be near or at the cattle guard.

2013-05-11 I was interested in the snow conditions for Tijeras and peaks around Sand Lake. I made it to within 3/4 miles and 400 feet below the parking area at 10,300 feet for Music Pass. There was too much snow to make it farther. I hiked the 6.3 miles and 2500 feet to Blueberry Mountain (1311) and unranked Snowslide Mountain and Blizzardine Peak. There are great views from there. Pic#1 is the road where we started hiking. Pic#2 is a view of the peaks from the ridge between Snowslide Mountain and Blueberry Mountain. Snowslide and Blueberry sit approximately 1500 to 2000 feet above the Sand Creek drainage to the east. Pic#3 is Blueberry Mountain at 12,005 feet. Pic#4 is another view of the Sangre De Cristo peaks, looking north towards Tijeras, Milwaukee, etc. piper14er  4
