We will be in the Pagosa Springs/South Fork area mid-June and are hoping to spend most of our time doing day hikes. We are hoping to hike in the Wolf Creek Pass area and have been wondering how likely we would have (relatively) snow free hiking there. We don't mind some snow and ice, but we're from North Carolina and don't own snowshoes!
We've also looked at driving up to the Creede area for a day and hiking there. Are there any day hikes along 149 before Creede or in the town itself? We've been looking at Rio Grande Reservoir Road area for hiking. Is that road likely to be suitable for a 2WD sedan? We'll be in a rental car.
