The Dixon and Top of the Mountain trail system is open to the public. The first 2.5 miles of the Dixon trail is a multi-user trail open to hikers, bikers, and equestrians, please be respectful of others and follow the yield triangle of etiquette. Hikers may continue past the 2.5 mile turnaround point. Prepare for a 17+ mile round trip hike, with no pick up points or sources for water along the trail. See press release and the Dixon trail map for more details. No dogs are allowed on the Dixon trail, please refer to the dog trail map for which trails are dog friendly.
Lower trails are beginning to dry out, although some mud and areas of snow/ice still exist. You can expect variable conditions with snowpack on higher trails such as Blackmer, and then heading up on the Dixon trail, with almost a foot of snow as you reach the top of the mountain! Traction devices are highly recommended for the upper trails. Please report any downed trees or other unfavorable conditions to the Visitor Center by calling 719-576-2016 x6.
