West Maroon Pass

Aspen - Snowmass

West Maroon Pass (12,465') is located 6.45 miles from Maroon Lake in the Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness. It's the most commonly used route for thru-hikers between Aspen and Crested Butte, and the first encountered when traveling clockwise on the 4-Pass Loop. The West Maroon Creek Trail rises steadily past Crater Lake and the Maroon Bells into the upper valley, where grades steepen through vast alpine meadows up the west valley wall to the pass.
