  • Great experience! Hiking from Crested Butte to Aspen is easier than Aspen to CB. The trail from CB to the West Maroon Pass is only 4.5 miles and is a gradual climb with few rocks on the trail...  more »
  • Loved it, but it would be nice if the trails were better marked. Not heavily traveled so you won’t cross anyone until the end or at the beginning. Early spring is great but the water really washes...  more »
  • Crested Butte to Aspen is my all time favorite hike! Amazing wildflowers along the entire trail. We started at Schofield Pass, hiked to Aspen and back the next day. Start early to avoid the afternoon showers. We stopped at the top of the pass for lunch and the views.
  • First pass of the 4-pass loop trail. This is just the beginning but the views are already breathtaking! You should arrive here early because in order to camp, you'd probably want to cross frigid air pass too.
