Pretty hike but it’s pretty much downhill from the trailhead and you can hear the highway for most of the hike.

Once we crossed the Highway heading west there was a lot of snow and mud on the trail. Little Molas was still partially frozen, but the trail is doable.

I actually hiked 4.8 miles to bear creek area from little Molas. was a great day sunny and cool. Views were spectacular. Could see Purgatory, Engineer, Turks and Sultan. Definitely want to go back.

Gorgeous views but really close to 550. Would recommend hiking out from Molas Lake to Animas River instead.

Great hike! Very pretty scenery and the trail wasn't rocky (which I prefer). A little annoying to have to hear and cross 550 but that was the only negative thing to say.

Beautiful trail, waterfall and creek off to the side. Still had some wildflowers.
