The West Maroon is a wonderful trail to visit all summer, but it is best at its wildflower peak which is normally late July. Flowers are blooming up there for quite awhile, but at its peak they are waist high and offer a variety of colors. The trailhead is up past Schofield Pass and is best accessed by a SUV. It is 4 miles up to the West Maroon Pass and roughly 2000 feet elevation gain. This side of the pass offers a great variety of flowers and views. If you were to continue over this pass, you could hike through the evergreen forest into Aspen.
