Overview
Whitehead Trail #674 is a 8.02 mile one way hike with 1,287 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 38 miles north-northeast of Durango Colorado.


Parts of this trail are hard to follow. Most of the trail is above timberline, so navigation with a compass is best. The alpine meadows are full of blooming wildflowers in late July and August. Water is abundant, but should be purified due to problems with Giardia. As with all high-altitude areas, storms can move in rapidly, bringing severe lightning and rain, snow, and/or hail. Plan accordingly and please tread lightly.
