This is hands-down the most beautiful trail in Colorado that we have ever been on. Every turn brought something even more gorgeous than the turn before (and there were a lot of turns). Even though the trail wasn't difficult (just steep) it was highly worth it for the views.
Prepare for a very dusty ride, this trail is all fine dirt!
We ran this first, then part of Crystal City, then Schofield Pass. The cameras were out and lots of pictures were taken throughout the day. There were lots of waterfalls, meadows and huge trees. The trail was also very well-maintained, which was nice.
This trail will end up being one of the yearly runs from now on, even though it's very far from Denver. What a great run!
