Departing from a trailhead off Tigiwon Road just outside Minturn, this trail quickly enters into the Holy Cross Wilderness area. Hikers get to see first-hand the affects glaciers had carving out this tremendous valley. We will hike along Cross Creek, climbing periodically onto granite outcrops with views of the valley and Mount of the Holy Cross. The first miles of this hike feature spectacular fall colors and a lush valley.
