“West Marron to Crested Butte”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

Beautiful 11 mile hike to Crested Butte from Maroon bells parking lot. took about 5.5 hours with a lunch break on top of West Maroon and some snack/photo stops. Got a shuttle (dolly shuttles) into Crested butte town from the end of the trail above Emerald lake.

“Every step is gorgeous!”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

Hiked from Aspen to Crested Butte and back on this trail. It is spectacular! The hike from CB to Aspen is definitely easier. We live at sea level and struggled for air on the climb both ways, but the climb on the Aspen side seemed longer and steeper. Wildflowers in late July were amazing....especially on the CB side. Used Alpine Express shuttle and stayed at the hostel and had a great experience!

“Amazing Views... Bring Water Shoes in the Summer.”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Great hike... amazing scenery. My best advice is to pack along a pair of Tevas or Chacos if you are heading up to the top of the pass & beyond. There are several creek crossings on the Aspen side (above Crater Lake), and you will not want wet hiking boots (gaiters will not help you as the water in mid-July was mid-calf deep). We changed shoes for the creek crossings and had happy, dry feet for the climb.
