“Ridge running in the Teanaway”— Jason Santos
Once you've had your fill atop Iron Bear Peak, continue on the Teanaway Ridge Trail #1364 to a junction and bear left. You're now on the County Line Trail, which will take you along the ridge until you're skirting Miller Peak. At about 7.5 miles, you'll reach the junction with Miller Peak Trail. Hang a right if you want to summit Miller Peak (~6400'). From Miller Peak's summit, enjoy the view of Stuart and the Enchantments Peaks, as well as Navaho and Earl.
Drop back down from Miller Peak and continue right along Miller Peak Trail. You'll start dropping in elevation on a series of runnable switchbacks. Once you get lower into the valley, depending on the time of year, get ready for some creek crossings and wet feet.
At mile ~12.5, you'll reach the Miller Peak TH. Look for the Iron Bear Trail #1351 to the left and head up thataway. You'll gradually climb back up out of the valley and at ~16 miles, you'll hit the first junction you came to. Hopefully this looks familiar! Head back down Iron Creek Trail to the TH.
