“An epic alpine trail through the San Juans.”— Tyler Prince
It consists mostly of rolling singletrack, taking runners from near Ouray to Matterhorn Creek Trailhead and catching up with the approach to Wetterhorn and Uncompahgre Peaks at 7.5 miles. It winds through the basin between these two 14ers before departing this route to the right, at 13 miles and 12,600 ft. From here it continues for about 15 miles, winding by several alpine passes before descending gradual singletrack into the Alpine Plateau, an area of lower altitude tundra between Lake City and Gunnison.
As with any alpine trail in the San Juans, expect to see marmots, pika, and maybe some bighorn sheep and mountain goats.
