Aspen to Crested Butte

Aspen - Snowmass

The West Maroon Creek Trail joins the West Maroon Pass Trail to form a 10.45 mile thru-hike from Aspen to Crested Butte. This feature-filled route is highlighted by Maroon Lake, Crater Lake, West Maroon Pass and arguably one of the finest wildflower displays in Colorado. The east-west hike begins at Maroon Lake (9,580') outside Aspen and climbs 2,885' to West Maroon Pass (12,465'), then drops through high alpine meadows and moderates above East Fork Crystal River to East Fork of West Maroon Trailhead on the Crested Butte side.
