Squaw Pass Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Hike all the way to Squaw Pass, or take a day hike just a few miles up the trail. You might see some wildlife. Hike in the proper season, and you’ll find wildflowers and colorful aspens as well. If you’re going into the wilderness on horseback, there’s a stock-unloading area with hitching posts and corrals 0.6 mile before the campground entrance.

The trail climbs and occasionally descends as you follow Squaw Creek through a semi-narrow canyon. As you continue, the canyon opens up. You’ll see an amazing array of colorful aspens here in the fall. You’ll exit the trees at 1.8 miles, ascending at an easy grade through vast meadows stretching to Squaw Pass. Along the way you’ll cross many small streams, some with evidence of active beavers."
