This cross country route explores Forest Canyon. The route departs from the Alpine Visitor's Center On the Ute Trail. We start cross country about one mile
from the start at the Forest Canyon Pass sign. The destination is bottom of Forest Canyon. The route follows mostly an easterly direction as you follow a contour route down into the canyon.
There are many small side canyons which have streams which flow into Forest Canyon Creek. Along the way there are many beautiful vistas, meadows, wild
flowers, and one almost always encounters an elk herd.
