Dark Canyon Trail
September 20, 2010
One of my favorite fall hikes this loop offers some great wildlife, incredible view and a constant supply of aspen trees. About a mile in you come across a beaver damn that has the biggest beaver home I have ever seen. The second mile offers you an incredible view looking down on the Kebler Pass areas wilderness with its huge grove of aspens. The end of the fourth mile offers another view, this time westward, and the final two mile descent back to the trailhead will have you canopied in yellow, orange and red the whole way. This trail can be a short out and back or a 6 mile loop. A not to be missed fall hike. As you can see, as of the 20th of September the leaves still had a good ways to go in this valley.
