Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Independence Pass is home to a number of beautiful and easily accessible drainages right off the road. Throughout the summer months, peak-bagging enthusiasts are treated to numerous high summits within a stone’s throw of the pass, and after CO 82 opens around Memorial Day, the area becomes a very popular ski-touring destination.

Most people only scratch the surface of what Independence Pass has to offer from a skiing perspective, as there are a plethora of options available. We figured it would be convenient to include one of the easier, more classic tours in this book for anyone looking for a decent bang-for-the-buck outing near Aspen."
