Mt. Sneffels
Elevation: 14,150 feet
Mileage: 4.4 miles
Vertical Gain: 2,700 feet
Route: South Slopes

August 29 - 30th, 2003

Mt. Sneffels is the monarch of Ouray County and located in the beautiful San Juan mountains. Mt. Sneffels is a very beautiful peak and is showcased in many posters and postcards of Colorado. The approach to Mt. Sneffels via Yankee Boy Basin is a very scenic and also exciting drive. From just outside of Ouray, turn right onto Ouray County 361. After 4.7 miles, take a right and watch the scenery unfold in front of you. The road follows an old mining road that was literally carved out of the mountainside. The road isn't that bad and high-clearance cars like the Outback can make it to the 4wd parking.
