Conundrum Hot Springs via Triangle Pass

Lower Copper Lake Trailhead Crested Butte, CO 81224, United States
Mike Bell
The first 4 miles of this route follow a fire road alongside Copper Creek before it turns up the 3-mile rocky ascent of Triangle Pass. The backside of the pass had some of the most beautiful wildflower fields that I have ever seen. A 2-mile descent will lead you to Conundrum Hot Springs where you can rest your weary knees before turning around and racing home. Watch out for naked people in the hot springs. It can get especially crowded on weekends.
