Great loop. Lower part was a bit muddy. Upper ⅔ of trail was snow packed. Did it in trail running shoes and had to scramble a bit in spots to keep footing. Some type of crampons might help depending on your balance.

Difficult but beautiful. Very snowy, but a lot of the trail was narrow so snowshoes might be awkward. Have layers and prepare to get really hot if it’s a sunny day (mid January)

Amazing trail well kept and clearly marked. Great views of the town of Telluride, surrounding mountains, slopes and the valley out of town. Currently minimal snow/ice took about 2 hours to complete the loop (includes time to soak in the views and take pictures)

I strongly recommend to have boots that can handle snow, ice, mud and puddles. Otherwise your probably not gonna make it. I suggest going up the Liberty Trail side and down the Jud Wiebe side. Since the Jud side is in the sun more, it’s easier on the descent.

Always enjoyable every year we visit.... a great “first hike” of our visit to get acclimated to the altitude. Loose rocks make it a little challenging. Trees still turning, so views were gorgeous!

Really beautiful views and of the Aspen trees! A challenging hike due to the steep inclines. Worth it!

Challenging but worth the view during foliage! Many great photo opps with Aspen trees! The complete loop was 3.8 miles (to my parked car)-not 2.9!

Hiked on 9/7 Nice little loop trail that will certainly get your heart pumping! Beautiful aspens line the trail - I bet it’s incredible in the fall. Amazing views of the town and the mountains. Still tons of wildflowers too!

I liked this trail, and maybe I was tired from doing Cross Mountain (great trail) yesterday, but I thought it was a bit of a workout. My Garmin said 1300 total ascent and 3.4 miles. It has beautiful views down to Telluride from several angles, the ski sloped and across to Ajax Peak and Ingram and Bridal Falls. On the NE corner of the loop trail, you get a good look at Mt Sneffels and the high pass over to the Blue Lakes on the other side of the mountains in the Sneffels Wilderness. There is a lot of loose gravel on the steeper sections so poles are not a bad idea, but it is good trail all the way.

A really nice local trail. A perfect morning hike. The incline if you go clockwise really gets your blood flowing. Tons of flowers and Aspen and nice views of the valley and the opposing ski mountain.
