We are a family of 5, ages 14-53 with varying fitness/health levels. We set out to hike this trail excited, yet having our doubts that all of us were fit enough to complete it. This is a technical trail in that there are boulders to...More

This is a 'guest-review' from my brother-in-law - I was on the hike too and plan to write my own review soon: "You are living in fear." That's what a friend told me last year when she saw the lengths I had gone, to gear...More

A beautiful walk, as is the walk via East Maroon Creek trail, through the pines and Aspen trees ultimately ending up in Crested Butte, Colorado about 25 miles away, seeing vast expanses of wild flowers...It's not unusual for there to be snow high up, even...More

The West Maroon Pass trail has been my favorite for years, despite the roundtrip from Aspen side being on the longer side (from Crested Butte, you save 1000 ft elevation gain and miles). Unfortunately, it's popularity leads to large, noisy, inconsiderate groups greatly diminishing your...More

Awesome hike! 11 miles of moderate - strenuous hiking one way. Several different nature environments along the way. Don't pack too much in your backpack - the weight is tough. Our relatively fit group finished in 5-1/2 hours with a short lunch break. Dolly's Shuttle...More

Views were magnificent and there was great camaraderie between other hikers on the trail. Would do it again in a heartbeat. We are "older adults" and it was challenging at times but exhilarating - took us between between 7 and 8 hours. Would like to...More
