Trail Overview

Most people start on the southern leg, about 5 miles south of Fairplay. Doing the loop, plus Lamb Mountain is 20 miles.The main loop of Browns and Breakneck Passes is mostly in the trees. There are groves of aspen on each end of the loop. The southern leg is extremely narrow, and there are long stretches where it is difficult to pass an oncoming vehicle.The western spur toward lamb Mountain rises into the tundra and affords a great view of Horseshoe Gulch. This is the most interesting part of the trail - do not miss it.
