Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This trail was built to honor fourteen men and women who died fighting one of the most explosive wild fires in Colorado history— the South Canyon Fire. It began as a footpath made by families of the firefighters and others as they hiked the mountain to pay their respects to those who had died. Its rough condition is intended as a tribute to firefighters and the challenging conditions under which they work."
