The Sneffels Highline Trail

September 10, 2005



 
This 13-14 mile trail starts in Telluride and ascends into the Sneffels Wilderness, carving its way along Pack Basin in the rugged San Juan mountains. We followed these instructions but traversed the loop clockwise. The trail is one of the most beautiful and strenuous I've ever hiked. The trail tops out at 12,200 feet — roughly 3,500 feet higher than Telluride.

Here's another photo of Lake Isabelle, with Shoshoni, Apache and Navajo Peaks in the background, and a photo of my Dad and Rose, my stepmother, climbing towards the summit of Pawnee Pass (over 12,000 feet in elevation).
