“A short loop through aspen and pinon pine along Mosca Creek.”— Kristen Arendt
After the switchbacks, you'll parallel Mosca Pass Trail and Mosca Creek through stands of aspen and narrow-leaf cottonwood until the trail rejoins Mosca Pass Trail. Wellington Ditch Trail branches to left and the junction is well-marked. This short trail is a great loop on its own or can be combined with Mosca Pass Trail or Wellington Ditch Trail for a longer run.
Deer, elk, squirrels, rabbits, hawks, jays, and ravens.
