Info: Culebra route is completely dry and snow-free up to the summit. Still plenty of snow along the ridge at higher altitudes, but it is completely off-route, you‘ll never get near it.

Info: Great Conditions. Recent rains have made the dirt roads less dusty. Forest floor is green and the tundra is thick. Snow is not an issue on the route. La Veta Pass is open. Did not see or smell any smoke from west fork fire on this day. PS only 10 climbers on Sunday of an allowable 25.

Info: Good/easy climb. By entering the gate at 6am, we started climbing after driving up the access road to the upper trailhead 1 mile past 4-way(road was in great condition and clearance was no problem - an older Subaru Outback made it with no problem - although steepness esp with a wet surface, which we didn‘t have - would make 2wd or frond wheel drive not recommended) we started hiking at 6:55 and summited by 10am. 4 climbers headed over to Red Mtn. but returned from that saddle, as clouds/thunder was close and building. All were back to the upper trailhead by 1 pm at a leisurely pace.

Info: Season opener on Culebra today, no snow of any significance and the route(s) are very easy to figure out. Road to the trailhead is in good shape, however 4WD becomes helpful on the steep sections so you don‘t spin out. Mostly jeeps and trucks at the upper trailhead, and a subaru outback.
