One of the biggest drawing points of this trail is the unique opportunity to combine a wilderness trip with a ride on a steam locomotive. This same attraction can also affect other aspects of your wilderness experience, by decreasing the overall solitude with increase visitation. Elk Creek drains the northern porition of the Grenadier Range, which includes Arrow, Vestal, and the Trinity Peaks; a mecca for mountaineers. These features, along with access to the Continental Divide Trail, make Elk Creek one of the most heavily used trails in the entire Weminuche Wilderness. Remember to filter water and practice low-impact camping.

West from Molas Pass the Colorado Trail stays at high elevation, above treeline for most of the way to Bolam Pass. This and the connecting trails in the area are popular high altitude mountain bike trails once the snow melts in July.
