Circle Trail is a great, primitive and narrow descent from Section Point on the Colorado Trail into the town of Rico, CO. The top section is difficult for route finding before the single track becomes well defined.

       As of Saturday May 12 there were trees across the trail in 6 locations and a few snowy spots. With the exception of one place where several trees were down together, getting over the trees was not difficult. Still a lot of snow up on top between the saddle and junction with the CT.

       Hi G, thanks for your report! It appears all deadfall have been cleared from the trail as of May 20. I hiked from the bottom all the way to the entrance at the yellow sign on top and it was clear. Only 2 small snow patches on the trail that will probably melt off in the next couple of days. Enjoy!!
