French Pass Trail
One of the prettiest hikes in the state offers everything: a beautiful riparian area, a riot of nonstop wildflowers, and panoramic peak views. However, it also features a very healthy bug population because of the abundance of water and the lush vegetation that goes with it, so take precautions. The pass goes all the way to Breckenridge, but you’ll need a car shuttle on the other side, unless you are prepared to add 10 miles to the end of the hike. You can also summit two 13ers: Bald Mountain or Guyot Peak. The former, which is described below, is a steep, beautiful climb, the latter an “exciting” knife-edge ridge walk.
