Little Cochetopa Trail #1409 is a 3.67 mile one way hike with 1,979 feet elevation gain. Located 40 miles east of Gunnison Colorado. September and June are the best months to enjoy this hike.

The trail takes off from the end of the road and climbs toward the Continental Divide. Little Cochetopa Creek parallels the trail. Fishing, for brook trout, is especially good in the beaver ponds. This trail is a favorite for a leisurely day of fishing.
The road to the trailhead is generally closed by heavy snow until late May.

This trail is one of the most beautiful hikes on the Salida Ranger District. The trail meanders along the stream and a leisurely pace will afford hikers the opportunity to see elk and other wildlife.
