This spectacular tour of the Maroon Bells Wilderness crosses the four passes: West Maroon, Frigid Air, Trail Rider and Buckskin, going from the lowest elevation at 9600 ft to the highest at 12,500 ft.  It is rated as one of the most beautiful hikes in the U.S. No, we won't try to break Sage Canaday's record running time in 2013 of 4 Hours and 27 minutes. We will instead take a more leisurely 4 days/3 nights to make the circuit. The leader has not done this trip before so be prepared for a lttle adventure.
