Open trails

Does anybody know if either Central City to Rollinsville or Argentine pass are going to be open/drivable anytime soon?

And if not, are there any trails open late march/early April?

Central City to Rollinsville is open now. It is called Colo hiway 72. There is no off road track, unless you are talking Apex road. Apex is closed right now for winter.
Argentine pass, the one from Georgetown to Grant? Summer only.

Think June/July timeframe depending on your direction of travel

Georgetown to Grant is Guanella pass. Used to be kept open in winter but not anymore. Argentine pass road is reached via Guanella. None of these will be open before June. (maybe late may if we dont get much snow but we need the moisture). Apex on the north side is a ski trail this time of year.

Some trails may be open at lower elevations depending on snow conditions. This time of year I usually go to Moab UT.

Are you looking to run trails? I'm planning to run Yankee Hill, near Central City, on Friday. I ran it in February without issue and checked with a friend near Idaho Springs, and it should be doable. You're welcome to meet up with us if you're free.

Chinaman in BV can usually be done this time of year. As far as high trails, we are not even close yet. Maybe some of the Junction trails, not sure. Don't usually drive that far, and if I do am heading to Moab.
