Lizard Head Pass Snowmobiling

The 9th most popular snowmobile trail in Colorado.

South of Telluride, the Lizard Head Pass area has miles of powder meadows open to snowmobiling under the massive Sheep Mountain.

To reach the snowmobiling trailhead for Lizard Head Pass from Telluride, head south on SR145 for about 13 miles.

All snowmobiles operating on federal lands within Colorado are required to be registered with Colorado State Parks. This registration permit is available at most National Forest ranger offices and at some chamber of commerce offices. It is highly recommended to purchase the $3 annual Colorado Search And Rescue Card (CORSAR) prior to snowmobiling to help reimburse local search teams should they be needed.

Overall, Lizard Head Pass is the 9th most popular snowmobile trail of all 24 snowmobiling rides in Colorado.
