Wright's Lake Spur


Travel southwest out of Ouray on the Camp Bird Road (County Road 361) into Yankee Boy Basin (4WD). At the toilet on the left side of the road Parking can be found. Walk 0.5 mile up the road to the trailhead on the left side of the jeep road.


The Wright's Lake Spur round trip to Wright's Lake is 2.4 miles with the trail going through flower covered slopes on the way to the lake. At the lake is a junction with the Blue Lakes Trail. From that point, it is 0.4 miles to the Blue Lakes Pass and the Sneffels Wilderness area.


Weather changes rapidly in this high basin; storms may not be seen until they clear the ridges, and lightning is a serious hazard on high points.
