Starting at the Little Molas Lake Trailhead, this segment of the Colorado Trail can be anything from a 2-mile out-and-back to a 22-mile trek. The first 1.5-miles are a pleasant climb up to the ridgeline, and then the next several miles are a contouring traverse of the top of the Lime Creek watershed. A popular hike includes the first 4-5 miles, enough to reach the saddle between North Lime Creek and Bear Creek. This stretch will give you great views of the La Plata and southern San Juan Mtns - Grand Turk, Engineer, Twin Sisters, Twilight, Hesperus... And in the Summer, you are waist-deep in wildflowers for most of the trail !!

This is an absolutely beautiful stretch of the Colorado Trail, right through the heart of the San Juans. There are endless options for bike rides and hikes here. About 10 miles into the trail, you reach a junction with the Engineer Mountain Trail. This will take you to Coal Bank Pass or Cascade Creek. Or stay on the Colorado Trail, and the next junction hits the Rico-Silverton Trail, which will take you down into South Mineral Creek and Silverton. There are no wilderness areas near here, so you can bike the Colorado Trail all the way from here to Durango!
