Fun trail - parked at Eider Creek trailhead and made a loop by returning via Deep Creek trail, about 6 miles total. (as suggested by Telluride Mountain Club, thank you!) Very quiet, only met one other group coming from the other (Mill Creek) direction. Some snowy and melty patches, lots of birds, especially in the meadows. Aspen are just staring to leaf out, so perfect dappled sun in early June. Some pungent mammal (not human) smells also! Fantastic postcard views in the bowl area near the Sneffels trail turnoff. 4:5!

Beautiful aspen laden trail. Connects to deep creek - head west and find paradise!

The 12.2 miles shown on the map is actually Eider Creek +part of Deep Creek+Mill Creek+part of Jud Wiebe trails. The Eider Creek portion is steep up hill. The other parts, not so much. The big drawback is that you have to walk up a boring road to get to the Eider Creek trailhead.

Aspen groves, meadows, a waterfall and views from ridge line. This trail is great.
