Description

From the Boreas Pass winter trailhead, go south past the gate and look for a singletrack on the west side of the road. The trail has been recently (2014) realigned and features numerous switchbacks through a beautiful aspen grove.

The trail terminates at a gravel driveway on the lower section of Boreas Pass Road (paved). Take a right on the driveway back to Boreas Pass Road and climb back to the trailhead. Utilize Illinois Gulch Road to short-cut the climb back to the trailhead.

Took from Illinois Creek trail. Lots to see through Aspen Alley. Beautiful views and trees. Saw two moose, one close to trail so turned around there.
