This trail offers spectacular views of Hesperus Peak as it passes through aspen, spruce, and fir forests. The trail follows West Mancos Canyon upstream for 5.0 miles to the historic mining town of Golconda.
This trail was the main wagon supply route from Dunton to Rico in the early 1900s. Skiers brought the mail in during the winter. The trail is a pleasant and relatively easy walk from the Meadows to Dunton.
