Belleview Mountain Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Maroon Bells are amongst the most popular and photographed mountains in Colorado. When it comes to hiking them, it’s a different story. The stratified layers of ruddy rock hide a shell of molting marine shale that makes hiking unstable and loose. Belleview offers a nice change of pace from its more photogenic neighbors to the north.

Belleview’s name doesn’t pull any punches: you’ll have spectacular views of the fabled Maroon Bell peaks. A fine scramble to the summit has a few hidden surprises as well."
