Description

This primitive trail ascends from the Gunsight Notch to the summit of Mt. Emmons. From here you get excellent views of the town of Crested Butte, the Ruby Range, West Elk Wilderness, the Paradise Divide, and the Elk Mountains. A worthwhile detour while running or hiking the Scarp Ridge Trail.
