This hike has several attractions that draw hikers of all persuasions: one of the largest huckleberry patches in the region, spectacular views of the Monte Cristo Peaks, and, last but not least, a variety of wildflowers, as this trail passes through several life zones. The trail was built by the Forest Service in the 1920s to serve as a recreational trail for visitors staying at Big Four Inn, which burned down in 1949. Though the focus of this book is flowers, keep this hike in mind for fall, when the trail is vivid with the bright hues of vine maple, mountain ash, and huckleberry shrubs.
