Lake Como sits at the convergence of three trails: Hurricane Pass, California Pass, and Poughkeepsie Pass in one of the most scenic areas of the San Juan Mountains. Its been years since I have been on Poughkeepsie Pass Trail it is reported to still be closed by snow. The guide book says that a winch is necessary to make it now. Even worse, it says to "expect severe vehicle damage". Not having a winch may be a good excuse to avoid it this year.
