Anthracite Creek/Dark Canyon Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The Raggeds Wilderness covers 65,443 acres in the Gunnison and White River national forests and preserves two ranges in the Elk Mountains: the Raggeds, jutting skyward to serrated ridgetops; and the Ruby Range, white capped through much of the year.
This trail leads right to the middle of it, following Anthracite Creek beneath the towering rock walls of Dark Canyon. Elevations range from 6,800 feet to 13,000 feet, but this trail is lower so hiking is relatively easy on the stretch described here."
