Description: From the East Maroon Portal cross the bridge and bear right. In 1-1/2 miles the trail branches,
continue left for the East Maroon Trail (the Maroon Creek Trail ro Maroon Lake goes to the right). At 4/1/2 miles,
the trail branches again, keep straight. The right trail leads to a horse camp. A mile or so further two old cabins
can be seen. At about the six mile mark, just past a large avalanche area, is the first of two stream crossings.
During spring runoff these crossings can be very treacherous and are often impassible.The second stream
crossing is about a mile farther. Two miles beyond the second crossing, at approximately 9 miles, the trail forks.
Take the right fork to East Maroon Pass (the left goes to Copper Pass, Triangle Pass and Conundrum Hot
Springs). Cross a small stream and continue heading right on the main trail as several false trails go off to the left.
The trail continues for another mile or so then curves left and traverses uphill to East Maroon Pass.
Directions: From roundabout, drive 6.4 miles up Maroon Creek Road to East Maroon Portal parking lot.
