Mostly Dry: Crossing east river at the very beginning is a bit tricky but very doable for beginners (like me ;-)) History

Getting forecast...

This is a beautiful trail that travels through one of Crested Butte’s most scenic valleys.

Impossible to cross the east river by car (too deep). Declared mileage takes into account the first part right after the parking. Great views/colors! 10mi — 3h 40m

Road to trailhead blocked by beaver dam. So add a steep climb before reaching the trail.
