Details

Beginning near the Butler Gulch trailhead, hike up the valley following West Fork Clear Creek. At the creek’s headwaters, bushwhack north to a near-by saddle which intersects with the Continental Divide Trail. Now above tree line, you’ll enjoy spectacular views of Vasquez Peak, Jones Pass, and the valley surrounding Clear Creek. Follow this trail for several miles where it then drops back into the trees and intersects with another trail to complete the loop back to the trailhead. Wildflowers in abundance.
