Description

From the Jones Pass Trailhead, follow this trail as it switchbacks us the southern aspect of Vasquez Peak for just under 1.5 miles. The trail travels through mixed forest that thins continually as you ascend toward treeline. You'll reach a junction with the CDT just below the actual timberline.
