This loop has an instant backcountry feel as soon as you leave the trailhead. From there, the route climbs, twisting westward into the hilly grasslands and ghostly fire-scorched forests.

Cresting at nearly 7,500’ sets up a long, grin-inducing descent through aspen groves with stunning views to the east
