Maroon Bells 4 Pass Loop: Day 3 Fravert Basin to boggy area
Today, you’ll descend from the Fravert Basin following the descent of the North Fork of the Crystal River. After a steep drop over some trail switchbacks, trail #1974 joins trail #1976, the North Fork Cutoff Trail. Take the N. Fork cutoff toward the next pass, Trail Rider Pass. The trail will connect with Geneva Lake Trail (#1973) but you may never notice the change in the name of the trail. Climb the switchbacks to the top of Trail Rider Pass and enjoy the views of Snowmass Peak and Snowmass Lake below. From Snowmass Lake, take the Maroon Snowmass Trail drops from Snowmass Lake into a boggy area. We will camp here for the 3rd night.
