Weminuche Trail #592 is a 11.27 mile one way hike with 2,777 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 39 miles east-northeast of Durango Colorado.
The Weminuche Trail provides a jumping off point for many other trails and destinations. The Weminuche Trail itself travels high above Weminuche Creek, passes the junction to Granite Lake and eventually ties into the Snowslide Trail (653) on the Columbine Ranger District. The trail drops in elevation for the first two miles to the junction with Hossick Creek (585) and Shaw Creek (584) trails; keep this in mind for the hike out after a long day. Only after passing these trail junctions do you finally enter the wilderness. This trail is used heavily by stock so please yield to passing parties.
