3.6 Miles/ 5.7 km: 915′ ascent/descent
This is a fun, mostly directional loop with fantastic views of the Flattops to the north when you reach the top.
It starts with an easy loop in the lower meadows, but then climbs steeply through a shady spruce and pine forest. Please remember that the middle section of Coal Camp is bi-directional, please yield to uphill users.
Lower Coal Camp Descent
.4 Miles / 643 m is a short flow trial that brings you back down to the upper trailhead and the top of Tramway Trail and Lightning Bug.
