Hiked 8.5 miles round trip starting in Copper Mountain. Has a few creek crossings and beautiful hike through the forest. A few cyclist came by us,a few people trying to complete Segment 8. Nice day hike.

Super fast leaving the Pass. Burning brakes for 2 hours heading South is exhausting. Loose gravel, very dry and major descents. Not a place to "just try out". Plan, pack and plan to be exhausted. Minimal water in late summer.
