View Ute Creek, Weminuche Wilderness Trail Guide



As the largest designated wilderness in Colorado, the Weminuche is hard to beat. With meadow-covered ridges in the north, 14ers in the west, early snowmelt in the south, and solitude in the east, there’s something for just about any mood. The hike up Ute Creek leads to multiple loop possibilities, with trails running along creeks, passing lakes, climbing the Continental Divide, and meandering through lush meadows. And when we hiked this trail in late summer, we saw considerably more bear scat than we did people.

Great trip report. Last summer we car camped at the Thirty Mile Campground on the Rio Grande River. We day hiked up the Weminuche Trail with the plan of hiking to the base of the Rio Grande Pyramid and the Window. We got to the Skyline Trail spur but unfortunately we had to turn around due to thunderstorms in the area. I plan on going back this summer and backpacking a loop with the Weminuche and Squaw Creek trails. Maybe if we get lucky we can bag the Rio Grande Pyramid. Beautiful area.
