Three Mile Creek Trail #635

Mount Evans Wilderness

Located within the Mount Evans Wilderness, the 6.6 mile Three Mile Creek Trail, is rated as Moderate. The Three Mile Creek Trailhead is at an elevation of 8,960 with it's end at the junction with the Rosalie Trail being at an elevation of 11,830.

The Three Mile Creek Trail provides access into the heart of the southern half of the Mt. Evans Wilderness. 

The first half of the trail follows Threemile Creek in a northeasterly direction. The stream and trail are in a narrow canyon with a number of stream crossings. As the trail swings more toward the east, it gradually begins to open up into a meadow. From a point east of Spearhead Mountain, the trail begins to rise steeply away from the creek in a series of switchbacks. As you ascend these switchbacks, look behind you from time to time for dramatic views to the southwest of Kenosha Pass, South Park and the mountains west and south of Fairplay. At the top of the switchbacks the trail begins heading north. You will still be in trees and gaining elevation, but at a much lower rate than the steep switchbacks. Shortly, you will emerge from the trees into open tundra. Kataka Mountain will be on your left (west) and Mt Evans and Mt Bierstadt will be ahead of you and slightly to the left (north/northwest). Continuing north, the trail descends to meet the Rosalie Trail.
