Description

Start at the Conundrum Creek parking area and head south along the Conundrum Creek through aspen and conifer woods. The trail stays gently uphill for the first 7.0 miles or so until you get above the treeline where you gain 3,000 ft in about 2.0 miles up to Triangle Pass.

Once over the pass you cut back and head northwest down along the ridge line until you come to a faint split - going left down the ridge toward the trees will take you down to Copper Lake and right up the steep slope over the ridge takes you along the Copper Pass Spur #1983.1 which connects to the East Maroon Creek Trail #1983.
