This was my first day hike of a 2 week car camping and hiking trip to the San Juan Mountains of Colorado. The previous day I had driven from Phoenix to Lizard Head Pass and set up camp in the dispersed camping area across the highway from the trailhead. The next morning I walked from camp to the trailhead adding about a mile round trip to the total distance. The hike was strenuous but the trail was in good shape and miles of switchbacks made the hill climbing easier. The trail started out crossing a meadow and passing through a large Aspen forest which was just starting to show some Fall color. The forest thinned out on the approach to the top of the ridge providing amazing views of the surrounding peaks and valleys. It was an excellent first time introduction to these mountains.
