There are several different ways to access this trail, the easiest being from the top of Coal Bank Pass 10,600ft via the Pass Creek trail. This typically is done with a shuttle vehicle at the bottom of the trail or simply hitchhike back up.

Alternatively, you can ride the Colorado Trail from Molas Pass and link up with the EMT. This is a great alpine ride which also is typically done with a shuttle. The best times to hit the EMT is usually early July through September. If approaching from the bottom for an out and back, you can start earlier in the year and turn around when it gets wet/snowy.

This trail is fun and technical at times. The views at the top are amazing.
