Love's Cabin is a well known landmark at the junction of Hasley Basin and the North Fork of the Crystal. The trail follows the North Fork of the Crystal until it goes over Frigid Air Pass. One large water fall can be seen about a mile east of Love's Cabin. Fravert Basin along the way is a wide, open, scenic valley. The back of the Maroon Bells can be viewed from the basin. This trail begins at the same spot as the Geneva Lake trail. The grade is gentle until the waterfall, and is again gentle until the ascent over Frigid Air Pass. It can be part of a loop trail connecting West Maroon Pass and Snowmass Lake.
