Much of this trail is on high mesas above or just below tree line. Water is sometimes scarce. The Endlich Mesa Trail (#534) climbs and descends often, with spectacular views in good weather. As with all high-altitude areas, storms can move in rapidly, bringing severe wind, lightning, rain, snow, or hail at any time of year. Plan accordingly.The Endlich Mesa Trail, also known on some maps as the Silver Mesa Trail, passes several old mines en route to Columbine Pass. Trimble Pass, at mile 10.5, is the high point at 12,800'. The alpine meadows are full of blooming wildflowers in late July and August. This area provides excellent views and photographic possibilities.
