A Quick Guide to Responsible Tourism
Tread Light and Don't Trample
Colorado has an abundance of pristine, but fragile nature. Alpine tundra is extremely fragile and this is found all along Guanella Pass and in many other areas. You might be tempted to walk off trail for the perfect photo opp or for a faster way up a hill. The trails are there for a reason. They protect a variety of species from human destruction. Respect our beautiful state and STAY ON THE TRAIL. If you step out of your car and there isn't a path, do not wander. Even if there isn't a sign, do not trample.
