Little Blanco Trail to Quartz Lake Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The Little Blanco Trail provides a beautiful way to access the Continental Divide. Once you climb to the top of the nearest ridge, you are in alpine country, where the views are just as awesome as expansive. Wildflowers dot the trail in the summer months, and aspens on the lower section of the hike are ablaze in the fall. If the Divide is your destination, consider spending the night at Quartz Lake and making it a day hike from there.
You’ll find a sign at the trailhead. Although it describes Quartz Lake as being 4 miles away, you should know that it is 4.7 miles and a climb of 2,400 feet in elevation. The trip is worth every inch of effort needed to get there. There are no facilities at the trailhead, just a trail register and plenty of room to park. There are places to camp en route."
