Description

Mixed conifers characterize this 3.7 mile trail located on the south facing slope of the Rio Hondo Canyon. Like most trails in this area, Italianos Trail follows the canyon bottom most of the time, but gains 2,800 feet in elevation. For this reason avalanche hazard during the winter and early spring is a special consideration. Water is available along the entire length of the canyon, but should be properly treated before consumption. For short trips, take a supply of water from home or other domestic source. Day hiking, backpacking, pack and saddle as well as back country camping is permitted along the entire length of the trail. If you pack it in, please pack it out. Motorized vehicle use is not allowed. This trail provides access to Lobo Peak, Flag Mountain, Gold Hill and to the proposed Columbine/Hondo Wilderness Study Area.

In the summer months trail can be used for hiking and horseback riding. . In the winter months the trail is used for snowshoeing.
