Description

Starting on the north end, this trail is quite easy and pleasant for the first half mile as it winds through aspen and pine forest. It breaks out into semi-desert territory and begins to climb for quite a while, and some folks will have to hike-a-bike, though the only excuse is lung capacity!

Enjoy some nice high views before heading back into forest for a technical, rocky section. Though the trail doesn't climb or descend much here, it will take some time to navigate the rocks.

You'll hit the Robertson Pasture Trail, where you should probably take a right turn to complete the Abajo Loop: Spring Creek to Robertson Pasture, though the trail continues on to the left for a short ways before ending.

This is the trailhead for both Robertson Pasture Trail (No. 020) and Spring Creek Trail (No. 159). After walking (carefully) over the green cattle guard, turn left and parallel the fence to reach Robertson Pasture Trail.
