Silver Creek #1959
ALERT: Due to recent bear activity, bear canisters [https://fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/stelprd3848454.pdf] are required for all backpackers in the Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness. This lightly used trail varies from easy to fairly steep in some areas and consists of a few loose, rocky stretches. The majority of the trail affords an excellent view of the encompassing mountains and the East Fork valley. The north side of the pass is a bit vague, but the cairns can be found to help pick out the trail. Water is available along most of the trail, but treat or filter before drinking. The trail ends at its junction with the Avalanche Creek trail.
